Hampton III Gallery in Taylors, SC, just outside of Greenville, SC, will present a weekend celebration featuring works by Janusz Zadurowicz, from Feb. 20 – 22, 2014. A reception will be held on Feb. 20, from 7-9pm with an artist’s talk beginning at 8pm. A Coffee and Conversation will take place on Feb. 22, from 11am-noon.
Born in Leczyca, Poland, Zadurowicz’s artistic sensitivity was largely stimulated by his grandmother. At the age of five Janusz founded his own home theater: The Theater of Imagination. His thespian passions lead him to the Theater of Octota in Warsaw and kept him there as an actor and director for ten years. In 1986, upon completion of his studies at the University of Warsaw, he received his diploma in fine arts. He made his American debut at Dianne Beal Contemporary Art Gallery in Washington, DC, in 1995. In 1996, 1112 Gallery in Chicago, IL, hosted an exhibition, accompanied by a full catalog. In the mid-90’s until May 2004, Zadurowicz lived in Greenville, SC, where he painted, studied theology, and ministered among the Polish people. Currently, he resides and paints in Warsaw. His work has traveled in exhibitions throughout Europe and the US. He has received awards and recognitions on several continents.
Zadurowicz’s painting revives the magical and mystical spheres of reality. His content is replete with signs, symbols, and intellectual games. History plays an important part in his compositions. Past civilizations are reflected in the images that are scratched out between his layers of colors. His textures, at times, are reminiscent of metal etchings, enhancing the painting’s relief quality.
Hampton III Gallery LTD is located at 3110 Wade Hampton Blvd., Suite 10, in Taylors.
