Julian Stańczak (1928 – 2017)

Julian Stańczak. Accompanying Warm, 1979

Bardzo ciekawy człowiek i artysta. Uratował się cudem z Syberii, stracił tam władzę w jednej ręce i po długich powojennych przygodach znalazł się w USA i rozpoczął tam swoją op-art artystyczną karierę. Bardziej był znany w USA niż w Polsce, choć ostatnio jego prace w kraju są zauważane i (oleje) są już bardzo drogie. Zachęcam do przejrzenia sieci, jest tam sporo filmów z tym niedawno zmarłym artystą. Na obecnych aukcjach naliczyłem pięć jego prac: jeden olej, jeden silkscreen i trzy seriografie. Na każdą kieszeń.

Lot 2058. “Accompanying Warm,” 1979. Oil on canvas. Signed and dated verso: Julian Stanczak, signed and dated again and titled on the stretcher, 32″ H x 32″ W. Provenance: Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, NV. Literature: “Accompanying Warm,” 1979 is documented on the artist’s site julianstanczak.com under collections. Juilan Stanczak studied with Josef Albers at Yale and then went on help found the Op Art movement, a term named after Stanczak’s first solo exhibition in New York City in 1964. “The primary drive of colors is to give birth to light. But light always changes; it is evasive. I use the energy of this flux because it offers me great plasticity of action on the canvas.” -Julian Stanczak. Estimate $30,000 – 50,000.
