The paintings of Fr. Andrew Paul Lewandowski are physically direct and emotionally charged. Using inventive form and energetic color he describes his personal inner world, which is sometimes jubilant, sometimes sad, but always honest and direct; he has a canny ability to come up with just the right amount of narrative to keep viewers enthralled. His highly simplified, stylized figures, decorative designs, exuberant colors and unrealistic spatial relationships combine to create a poetic voyage into the internal landscape of the artist; this is an exploration of one's place in the world. Reflecting a blend of the secular and the spiritual, his evocative, unpretentious works invite contemplation of life's journey.
