He treats the sculpture as the art of individual expression. He wants his sculptures just to suggest a form and he leaves the final creation and interpretation to the viewer`s imagination.
Artist Statement of Mirosław StruzikIn my work the idea of form transparency and glaze constitutes a focal point.
I believe that sculpture has a form beyond a simple connection of point A to point B. In my work point B can be located in various places which are relative to point A.
My sculptures are possible suggestion of form. The final creation and interpretation is left to viewer`s imagination.
