The “Bydgoskie Redi-Medi” exhibition is my continuation of presentation of works different in terms of techniques and disciplines. Of course, it is not about shocking with diversity, it is only the effect of inspiration recorded on a variety of devices and materials. An impulse, in the blink of an eye, decides on the selection of the subject, theme… It turns out that the EYE is faster than thought, it surprises, allows you to instantly explore the world and issues of form. Grzegorz Bednarski, a Krakow painter from Bydgoszcz, says ‒ “my eye is like a Mozart’s ear”, while Picasso frankly admitted ‒ “I’m not looking, I’m finding”. This refers to the aspect of work, creating without hassle…
