Micheal Zarowsky Watercolours on Gessoed Panels
Micheal Zarowsky seems to have a line of vision that is altogether novel and intriguing. He sees some fragment of a far larger landscape and he takes this element, turns it a little plays with the colours, and creates a painting that is a highly appealing blend of impressionism and realism. Micheal has an uncanny ability to isolate the essence of a landscape, and the lluminate the small part of the whole, which becomes the very symbol of that which it represents. That, of course, is what abstraction is all about; but the genius of Micheal Zarowsky is that he presents the effect of abstraction while he is actually painting in a realistic way some isolated element that signifies, with utmost economy, the wider scene.
