First individual exhibition presenting Anubis – the series of paintings. A project, entitled “Anubis, my friend” was curated by Ewa Kawecka, the owner and animator of Galeria Łącznik. The opening took place on April, 2013. The exhibition was accompanied with a little booklet, published by Centrala / Picture Book.
Anubis, the jackal-headed funerary-deity is associated with the process of transition towards the afterlife. Ancient Egyptians called him Anapa or He who is upon his mountain. In the times of the Old Kingdom he was the most important protector of the deceased and their tombs.
Anubis is my friend, he helps me to tame my fears. At my canvas Anubis assumes many different roles in various contexts. One day he might be mine merciful and tender guide but for now he is sipping a coffee in a little place at the corner. He is a receptionist in a hotel, waiting for a late night guest to come. He is watching a movie, eating popcorn. He is rowing the boat on a river, giving the passengers a ride on the other side. He is traveling, constantly in a motion. He is going out, for a smoke. He is waiting at dusk in the garden near the sea. He is always there, for you.
