Artist Statement for Stefan Fiedorowicz
Stefan Fiedorowicz is an abstract contemporary
artist from British Columbia Canada now residing in Europe. He began painting
seriously seven years ago and has been painting full time since leaving the
public service in 2002, where he practiced social work for twenty two years. He
is also a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and has Active Status.
Born and raised in Ontario, Montreal and Victoria, BC, he comes from a family
of European descent.
I am committed to abstraction. Marc Rothko, Paul Klee and Hans Hoffman influenced my artistic endeavours. If I wanted to depict representational reality, I would have chosen photography, but I am a colourist, who uses color to convey something personal and internal. I use texture through oils applied with a scraper to depict emotion. I do not know what my fascination with oils is. It may be how the paint is applied and how it mixes so well on the canvas. My images originate in fragments of personal and cultural history. With allusion and visual suggestion comes artistic meaning. The emotion in my work comes from somewhere deep down, and can speak to the inter part of each person. In the spirit of abstraction, the perceiver is free to interpret each piece as she or he wishes. I’ve found that a good painting is one you can internalize, one in which a given element, or the work as a whole, means something special to you – perhaps in ways you might not admit to another person.
