Born in Ketrzyn, Poland in 1965, Jarek Puczel (aka Jaroslaw Puczel) received his MA from the University of Warsaw in 1990. Puczel catches the calmness of apparently simple and unspectacular situations with an impressive modesty and apparent ease. He creates an interesting and tense moment, which we can neither escape nor interpret appropriately. He explores the empty silence of different situations and reduces the image to the most essential details, thus forcing us to read between the lines and let ourselves dive into the situation depicted. His paintings have been exhibited across Europe and the United States, while he lives and works in Olsztyn, Poland.
