Painting on a hospital sheet.
Pictures on hospital sheets have become Professor Cześnik’s hallmark. The characters related to the health service, elements of hospital equipment, or the dark mood of these works appearing in them are the fruit of a long time of illness, which left a clear mark on his work. “The passing, the degradation of matter, and thus the number of people in Cześnik’s work is omnipresent. (…) This is not a dangerous memento mori, but an observation. It is in nature and there is no need to be surprised, so it may be more frightening. The biologicality of the sheets is strikingly visible. As in a Shroud of Turin, their humanity is visible on them from under what Cześnik painted on them “(Andrzej Matynia)
