TADEUSZ NIESCIER PHOTOGRAPHY
Tadeusz Niescier, a renowned Polish painter and photographer, lives and works in the northeastern landscapes of Podlasie. He was awarded his Master Degree in Painting in 1978 by the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. His doctoral thesis in visual arts won him his PhD in 2012, at the ‘Faculty of New Media and Scenography’ of the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts. His lifelong artistic study is grounded on the close observation of the simplest elements of plants and flowers, bringing the examination of detail to almost abstract expression. His paintings have been exhibited in Poland, Germany, USA. Niescier dedicates himself to teaching art and photography in various universities. Recently, his passion turned towards photography resulting in surprising portraits of the tiniest elements of plants in large scale, giving them new meaning and creating visual metaphors of cosmic infinities and human emotions. Extracted from their natural state, and often bearing the touch of time, these fragments of nature reveal incredible richness of texture and detail. In their faded abstract beauty, abundant and delicate, they capture, suspended in space, weightless frozen movements of life.
