This exhibition will bring together the painter's latest paintings as well as a small retrospective of his work at the Galerie Etienne de Causans (Saint Germain de Près). Through his paintings, Ulrik Poniatowski questions the human condition, which is made up of different states that vary according to the elements, people and forms that surround us.
Each canvas is a slice of life that represents the current state of the mind. The frame symbolises the human soul and the instinctive forms are an indication of its state. These instinctive forms, situated between letter and movement, are real artistic fingerprints that come and go to the rhythm of the music of the feelings and thoughts that animate us. By going from happiness to unhappiness, from harmony to disorder, from balance to instability, our thoughts and feelings take us through life like a roller coaster that we must not avoid.
We are all formatted for happiness and yet some of us get lost along the way. These detours are perhaps in truth only an indispensable passage in order to reach true happiness, which requires a great deal of self-knowledge and the acceptance that unhappiness is an integral part of life. Rather than running away from it, let us try to understand it, to become aware of its usefulness and its indispensable passage for the true knowledge of the human condition and the access to its fulfilment.
"The greatest artist remains a craftsman, the humblest craftsman is also an artist.

Thanks to the kind support of MARC ROZIER, you will be able to order your own small silk square printed on the table in the traditional Lyon style, reproducing one of Mr Ulrik Poniatowski's works of art.

See you soon,
