The presented series of paintings is an effect of processing and analyzing of military camouflage. Paintings were created with use of oil and acrylic techniques and what is more, they include collage elements. The series is a continuation of my works connected with the theme of war. The paintings are dominated by the masking pattern. In the “hidden” layer, one can observe elements of landscape, drawings of skin or people etc. Multitude of layers moves paintings toward abstraction. Uncanny shapes are like phantoms living somewhere in the depths of thoughts, they amorphically spill like amoeba, they are like the afterimages of strong light.
