“Antoni Starczewski. The idea of linear notation” book


Antoni Starczewski (1924–2000) is one of the most fascinating artists of the Łódź postwar period, a man who created compelling and original art, and also, on more than one occasion, was a forerunner of world trends and artistic practices. He worked in a variety of media: ceramics, prints, textiles, and also in situ projects. He explored the realms of visual art, music, and language. One of the basic mandates behind Antoni Starczewski’s work was a refusal to separate fine arts from decorative arts. He quite consciously set out to express his ideas in a variety of materials and techniques, for he saw art as a sphere where related statements in many forms affected one another.

“Antoni Starczewski was a remarkably original artist. In every field we clearly see that he took a path marked by his own thought processes, while current trends in art were of secondary concern to him,” says Marta Kowalewska, head curator of the Central Museum of Textiles in Łódź.

In every form he explored the issues of rhythm, difference in repetition, and sign systems. He created his own alphabet of forms and, in a natural manner, transferred it into rhythm-based projects. This led to the creation of visual scores. He saw the repetition of signs and symbols as the source of a great deal of inspiration; it gave direction to his search, regardless of the materials in which he worked.
