Stanisław Brach

“Everything comes from earth and eventually everything returns to earth” – these are the words of the ancient Greek philosopher of the pre-Socratic period, Xenophanes. However, despite being coined at the dawn of our culture, the idea seems close to Stanisław Brach, who uses various treasures excavated from the earth in his works. For centuries, we have been using clay to make bricks, sand has been used to make glass and lapis lazuli is the basis for a dye used by painters to give their works an unusual color. It is similar in the case of Brach’s works – he has created everything from earth. In his artistic activities, which refer to land art, we see an extraordinary ecological sensitivity. Brach’s use of nature’s fruits is related to his need to be outside the city, in a place where he makes sculptures, ceramics and installations from bee hives. The Po_kłosie [Aftermath] exhibition is yet another manifestation of the artist’s passion and an expression of his love for nature. To paraphrase Xenophanes: for Brach, everything that comes from an ear of wheat, is art.

Stanisław Brach – a sculptor born in 1972 in Gorlice. He is a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Since 2010, he has been Head of the Ceramics Studio at the Faculty of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. The artist was a finalist in the international competition of the 2016 Taiwan Ceramics Biennale and the winner of a gold medal for his works Miodem płynące [Flowing with Honey] at the 45th Apimondia International Apicultural Congress in Istanbul in 2017 and the 46th Apimondia International Apicultural Congress in 2019 in Montreal.
