Michal Batory “Pictures without titles”
The exhibition presents 32 paintings by Michal Batory. Those monumental images are derived from Michal Batory’s posters, but bereft of text that usually give the image an additional meaning and context. Therefore the spectator concentrates solely on the visual aspect of the artworks, unusual combinations of objects, not unlike the Surrealisme.
