Lubomir Tomaszewski

Tomaszewski's pieces represent the best quality of form and great aesthetical subtlety. This is really traditional, original, and humanistic art. Art which glorifies nature and mankind with its wisdom, strength, and beauty, It is transcendent art, based on artist's experience, education, and talent. Tomaszewski who comes from the family of artist (Bartlomiejczyks), graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland, in 1953 and soon established himself as one of the country best known product design specialists. He came to the United States in 1966 and became a professor of the Department of Commercial and Interior Design in Bridgeport University, Connecticut. During all these years he was improving his skills and cultivating his admiration for the traditional values of Fine Arts. Finally, like in the old masters work he was able to show in his sculptures something metaphysical which makes his work deeply powerful. He was never a subject of the art critics in Poland, but he was well recognized in the United States in early 1970s, even though, he did not belong to any avant-garde movement. He always stays in a shadow, being a very modest and sensitive person, but his works can be found in the most important private and museum collections in the USA, France, Japan, Germany, and Poland. In one of the interviews in 1994, Helen Barnett, director of Carriage Barn Arts Center in Wavery Park, CT, said, "If I were to go through the woods, I'd see nothing in it. But Lubomir can take these things and transform them into art." Similarly, art critic, Henry Riseman, director at the NECCA Museum in Brooklyn, CT, said that, "Tomaszewski is one of the most outstanding of the new wave of contemporary sculptors. His work is unique - one of kind".
