THE OVERTURE

THE OVERTURE
Photo Description:
Oil on canvas, 167x130 cm (2015) Piotr Pawliszyn is strongly interested in the issue of genocide, cruelty of war and its influence on future generations. He incorporates these topics in his new series dedicated to the victims of the Massacres of Poles in Volhynia and Eastern Galicia in 1943 by the Ukrainian nationalists. Using the example of that tragic event, Pawliszyn wants to build in his current paintings some sort of universalism since similar things happened in former Yugoslavia, Turkey, Rwanda and other countries.
