Paweł Wojas Artist Bio:
By "˜creation' I understand every kind of human activity, which aims to evoke emotional reactions in potential recipients. It may be painting, making unique furniture or just gardening... It may be- but it does not have to be. What forms the basis of creation is- to my mind- treating a work of art as something unique, incomparable and at the same time expressing to some extend (never full, though) our individual uniqueness. What lays foundations for creation is an emotion, an experience. Without them, art is barren. My approach does not define the quality of a work; it can be either awesome or miserable. I am full aware that such attitude is a bit archaic- but I cannot do anything about it... I do what I do as well as I can- I cannot act in a different way. In photography, which I treated once as a "worse" kind of art than painting, I discovered unexpected possibilities of creation. I attribute this discovery to the fact that photography has a tremendous load of reliability and credibility- looking at a photograph, we subconsciously assume that what we see "really happened", unlike painting, which is assumed to be a creation, creating something from non-existence; the same is true for a film. On the contrary, photography is something that we trust from the very beginning. This is presumably because we are surrounded with all kinds of photo documentation.... While making photographs I pay special attention to eliminating all kinds of technical tricks. I do not process photographs on computer, except for standard photo processing. I assure that everything that can be seen in my photographs did happen in the reality. Tryly existed in front of the lens. Nevertheless, it is still just recording of my inner world- the world coming from my inside; recording of non-existence...
