Artist Statement

The language of lyrical abstraction interpreted... by Michael Bouger 2008

Stefan Fiedorowicz, a Canadian now residing in Vienna Austria has amassed a most impressive resume with shows spreading out from Canada, United States and Europe. Fiedorowiczs work has often been compared to the great modernists of the past following the notable style of lyrical abstraction, a term meaning an opening to personal expression. While perhaps a compliment, this also seems a disservice to his striking talent.

The emotion in my work comes from somewhere deep down, and can speak to the inner part of each person... My work is intuitive colour is the language that I use to express an emotion. It is the interaction of colour that interests me.

Fiedorowicz possesses something more than a painter following in the footsteps of others before. There is a supreme depth to his work that captures a newer sense of Modernism, something that is sadly missing from the current art scene.

His shapes and lines infuse his paintings with a richly exotic symbolism of style. There is purpose and psychology to his work, conveying a sense of confidence from a broad spectrum of experience.

Fiedorowiczs distinction as a modern painter is in his grace and amplitude in creating works that are engaging and powerful They make more than a mark - they make a statement generating alluring and fascinating canvases.

Thesis Interview with lyrical artist Stefan Fiedorowicz

Personal Influence

1. Who are the artists both contemporary and historical that you can truly say have been a significant influence on your personal work Describe why for each artist.


I would have to say that Kandinsky would be my all time inspirational artist. I have seen many exhibitions of his work, just recently in Munich, I have seen why he is considered to be the founder of abstract art...in fact he was the first to have ever done an abstract.......



2. Do you believe that influences outside a major discipline, such as painters being influenced by installations or printmaking, are beneficial to the overall process of painting and why



3. As an abstract artist, are you drawn to others abstract pieces or more realistic artwork Do you think this decision is a conscious or subconscious decision

Artistic Process

1. Which colors do you find yourself using the most often and is there any particular reason


I love ochre, alarzin crimson, and Vermillion Red......Orange Chrome.....It is the interaction of these colours that interest me. Red of course expresses passion....



2. When recognizable figures or objects emerge in your work, however rare this may be, do you automatically paint them over or do you take time to think about the items overall effect before making a decision


I have found that most viewers always attempt to find something recognizable in a piece of work. This is how we are as humans...we are driven by the need to put meaning to things. I often hear people making comments as Oh, I see a ...........or that looks like a............Abstract art i think needs to be exactly what it is...Abstract......it makes people think more and dig deeper into a piece of work to find its abstract meaning. Rarely do I like to leave something that is recognizable in a piece of work. it is the colour and shape that interests me and how the colour interacts.



3. Do you use other items other than brushes, such as palette knives, to create texture in your work Do you prefer visual or actual texture and why


I mostly use palette knifes to obtain highly textured effects. I apply thick oil to obtain actual texture. The texture enhances emotion, in my belief, and gives depth and sometimes more meaning to a piece of work.



4. How much do you believe in the idea of pre-planning a canvas and how much are you willing to allow that idea to change as the painting progresses to a finished piece



I do not entertain this belief of pre-planning a piece of work. Abstract art I believe should be spontaneous, whatever comes out, comes out. Lyrical abstractions are done in this way. As a work progresses it has to be for me something that is appealing and right. I usually know when it is right....There are times when I have been completely dissatisfied with a work and change it completely or sometimes a bit. but the finished result must make a statement, it must move something inside the viewer. Abstract possibilities are endless and after each mark is made on the substrate, I have to make a decision of what comes next. In realism, one knows where the painting will end up. This is the part of my work that is the most thrilling to me...What happens next Lyrical abstractions requires the viewer to contemplate, study and ask themselves what am I feeling I enjoy being a part of the interactive experience with the person viewing a piece of my work.



5. How important is the title in your work Do they start out in the original phases of painting or are the final piece to the puzzle as the finishing touch


Yes, I do believe the title is essential. what it essentially does and especially for lyrical abstract work, it assists in giving the viewer some sense of meaning. I enjoy listening to music when I paint, and at times I may chose a lyric from a song or title of a song as the paintings title. I love ...   Read More
