Piotr Kotlicki is a polish artist. He currently works at the National Film School in Łódź at The Film and Television Directing Department. The figures he paints take place in unreal and dark contexts, in an apparently state of unconsciousness. They are between movement and stasis, between destruction and suspense. The unidentified figures, the spaces, and the temporality they inspire could belong to dream.

At the same time destruction and suspense
