Zdzis?aw Beksi?ski's Ghostly Worlds

Illustration // Wednesday, 28 Nov 2012

Zdzis?aw Beksi?ski (1929-2005) was a Polish painter and an iconic figure in Polish contemporary art. This gallery of paintings, from his "fantastic" period, includes vast misty abandoned landscapes and seemingly endless fields of gravestones. The immense grandeur and infiniteness of the landscapes contrasts with the clear allusion to mortality and finality in his works, forcing a viewer to ponder whether death is truly an end.
