Paintings in Themselves, an exhibition of works by Janusz Tarabuła, provides a closer look at art which evolved from Polish postwar painting in the wider context of the European painting of the 1950s and 1960s.

Tarabuła, aged 80, studied at the Faculty of Painting of the Fine Arts Academy in Cracow, where he later worked as a professor. He was a founding member of the Nowa Huta Group (1956-1961) and then the Cracow Group. His specializes in easel and monumental painting, drawing and graphic art.

Works by Tarabuła make frequent references to philosophy, geometry, optics, astrology and physics and, as a rule, Tarabuła contemplates the world and the inevitability of historical events. Each of his works takes a long time to paint and the end result features the silence and concentration which are characteristic of fulfilled masterpieces where everything seems deliberate and necessary.
