An internationally renown artist, Professor Jerzy Jedrysiak is the recipient of over 24 awards from Poland, India, Spain, Japan, Germany and US and his prints are part of many museum collections worldwide. Professor Jedrysiak's work centers on a metaphor 'Silva rerun' meaning 'The Forest of Things', which dates back to the Roman Empire. It refers to a text made up of various quotations, thoughts, reflections and recollections, which collectively create a view of the world; all that is significant and all that is trivial, matters of great importance as well as private, individual and personal experiences. Jedrysiak's poetic prints portray his world and all that is important, where reality becomes a metaphor and fantasy becomes reality.
Similarly Marta Wakula-Mac's inspiration for her linocuts is the creation of the world and celebration of life. Based on the book of Genesis WakulaĞMac's prints are both rich in texture and full of symbolic detail. Her series of linocuts depict spirited dancers who celebrate life and its dynamic energy. She combines thick heavy black lines with splashes of vivid reds to symbolize elation, movement and vitality.
Marta Wakula-Mac graduated in 2003 with a Masters Degree from the institute of Art, Pedagogical University in Krakow Poland. She subsequently studied linocut with her co exhibitor Professor Jerzy Jedrysiak. She is currently a member of Graphic Studio Dublin and has work in the Museum Archidiecezjaine Poland and the Civic Museum of Cremona, Italy. Her work is regularly published in The Stinging Fly Magazine and over 40 illustrations of her work featured in Susan Knight's book Gommorah (2007)
