Andrzej Malinowski

(Né en 1947)

"Ses nus lumineux, diaphanes, aux yeux mi-clos, aux poses simples et pleins de grâce nous envoient bien au delà d'une simple contemplation des formes. Ses belles apparaissent, venant de l'ombre, drapées de matières riches et sensuelles, vers la lumière. Ses toiles, dotées, d'indéniables qualités formelles et d'une exceptionnelle maîtrise, sont des icônes de la féminité."
