Polish sculptor Janusz Jedrzejowski draws his inspiration, first and foremost, from his own inner truth. While showcasing his decades-long experience and technical proficiency in wood and metal, Jedrzejowski’s playful figures remain firmly rooted in everyday moments and people, a tribute to the world he sees around him. Many times his figures appear engaged in leisure activities, like a man playing the flute or a woman leaning gently on a window frame in a contemplative moment. Even when Jedrzejowski draws inspiration from mythology and history, like the story of Eve or the fall of Icarus, the famous figures evoke a sense of quiet far removed from their dramatic context, encouraging us to reflect on the human search for one’s own essence and the dialogue between the inner self and the world.
Janusz Jedrzejowski presented his sculptures at over a dozen collective and individual exhibitions organized in the country and abroad. He lives and works in Zakopane.
