Tadeusz Biernot: Dress RehearsalSept 13 - Oct 11, 2014Opening reception

- Walnut Contemporary presents an Engine Gallery pop-up, Dress Rehearsal, featuring monumental portraits by Polish artist Tadeusz Biernot. The fragmented and layered faces reflect the flood of images that appear in the artist’s mind. Amid their visually chaotic appearance, they reveal the emotions, feelings and desires of their subjects.
Tadeusz Biernot was born in 1954 in Czechowice-Dziedzice, Poland. He received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland in 1979. He went on to teach type design at the Academy for a subsequent decade. In 1989 he moved to Italy and a year later to Canada. In 2005, after fifteen successful years of award-winning creative directing he decided to devote his entire time to painting, his first calling. Biernot has been exhibiting his works since 1979. His paintings are found in private and corporate collections in the United States, England, Italy, Germany, Holland and Canada.
