Description of contents:
Andrzej Dudzinski was born in 1945 in Sopot. He studied architecture in the Technical University of Gdansk and completed the Graphic’s Department in the Academy of Arts in Warsaw. He specialized in the posters’ composition, attending the workshop course conducted by H. Tomaszewski. In years 1970-72 Dudzinski stayed in London, co-operating with various underground magazines. His works were regularly published in the mainstream Polish newspapers, drawing common attention to chosen evidenced socially nurturing questions. Besides, Dudzinski was designing theatre and movie posters, illustrated books for children, projected theatre play stages and movies’ headlines. After having been invitated to the International Conference of Graphics Specialists in Aspen, he decided to move to New York. He started off his cooperation with the leading American papers. He is engaged in painting, drawing, press graphics and photography. The aesthetics by Dudzinski makes his viewers be caught by the immediate obsession of the other world existing simultaneously around our faded canons. He doesn’t impose any euphoric impulse on us, but makes us conscious and discovered ourselves within new ordered imperfection’s esthetical values. We become confident of our capacity of finding out and revealing syndromes of art vivant in the stages of various thematic dissonances, inequalities, ugliness, disharmonies, disorders, crashes, etc. His viewers become braver, more efficiently and fruitfully linking apparently not related images, devoid of inset and culturally approved common code of the universe.
He proves it is possible and moreover- proper to inset a symbiosis between wood and paper, or a friendship between fire and wood. The collisions, conflicts, oppositions, inconsistencies may exist as case in points of harmony and a reasonably adapted mechanism. Sometimes, Dudzinski’s (“Dudi’s”) manifestations require structurally more elaborated form, this is why he considers and applies then big formats, the sequences of 2 or 3 episodes, visualising his specific surreal vision preserving within the reason- result reality of the new kind observations as the most manifested compounds. The artist’s compositions carry out a polemics with the traditional orientation of Dada and Surrealism. We could put his visions aside e.g. Roland Topor’s literature contexts and exaggerations.
