Wisława Szymborska | The railroad station / La stazione ferroviaria


My nonarrival in the city of N.
took place on the dot.

You'd been alerted
in my unmailed letter.

You were able not to be there
at the agreed-upon time.

Jeff Rowland | Right here waiting for you

The train pulled up at platform 3.
A lot of people got out.

My absence joined the throng
as it made its way toward the exit.

Several women rushed
to take my place
in all that rush.

Somebody ran up to one of them.
I didn't know him,
but she recognized him
immediately.

While they kissed
with not our lips,
a suitcase disappeared,
not mine.

The railroad station in the city of N.
passed its exam
in objective existence
with flying colors.

Jeff Rowland

The whole remained in place.
Particulars scurried
along the designated tracks.

Even a rendezvous
took place as planned.

Beyond the reach
of our presence.

In the paradise lost
of probability.

Somewhere else.
Somewhere else.
How these little words ring.

Maria Wisława Anna Szymborska (1923-2012) was a Polish poet, essayist, translator and recipient of the 1996 Nobel Prize in Literature "for poetry that with ironic precision allows the historical and biological context to come to light in fragments of human reality".

Jeff Rowland

Il mio arrivo nella città di N.
è avvenuto puntualmente.

Eri stato avvertito
con una lettera non spedita.
Hai fatto in tempo a non venire
all’ora prevista.

Il treno è arrivato sul terzo binario.
È scesa molta gente.

L’assenza della mia persona
si avviava verso l’uscita tra la folla.

Alcune donne mi hanno sostituito
frettolosamente
in quella fretta.

A una è corso incontro
qualcuno che non conoscevo,
ma lei lo ha riconosciuto
immediatamente.

Jeff Rowland

Si sono scambiati
un bacio non nostro,
intanto si è perduta
una valigia non mia.

La stazione della città di N.
ha superato bene la prova
di esistenza oggettiva.

L’insieme restava al suo posto.
I particolari si muovevano
sui binari designati.

È avvenuto perfino
l’incontro fissato.

Fuori dalla portata
della nostra presenza.
Nel paradiso perduto
della probabilità.

Altrove.
Altrove.
Come risuonano queste piccole parole

Jeff Rowland

Jarek Kubicki, 1976 | 32nd day of Covid-19 Quarantine



"In recent days", says Polish painter🎨 Jarek Kubicki, "in Poland there have been many reports of police abuse in connection with quarantine, people are punished for ordinary cycling or jogging, even if they are alone and away from residential areas.

Eugeniusz Żak (1884-1926)


Eugeniusz Zak è stato un pittore Polacco.
All'inizio Zak espresse il suo temperamento artistico attraverso un sofisticato uso della linea, facendo riferimento nei suoi ritratti a sanguigna alle opere di Leonardo, Botticelli, Hans Holbein il giovane e Dürer.
Poi, nella prima fase della sua carriera, si accostò allo stile dei Nabis, mediante l'elaborazione di superfici piatte, circoscritte in modo sfumato, senza contorni precisi e dai colori leggermente opachi.
Per un breve periodo si lasciò prendere, come molti altri pittori parigini, dall'esotismo e dalle atmosfere tradizionali bretoni. Prese anche a prestito alcuni motivi delle porcellane cinesi e della miniature persiane. Dipinse inoltre delle vedute di vicoli e di "boulevard" parigini e, sporadicamente, anche soggetti religiosi tratti dal Nuovo Testamento.

Anna Bocek (Polish, 1973)


Anna Bocek 1973 | Polish painter

Anna Bocek studied at Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland, Faculty of Painting Set Design. Diploma in 1999. Undoubtedly, such mainspring of art for me is theatre - the most important source of inspiration and spiritual experiences both, as a viewer and an artist. Both aspects are equally important for me anyway.
The first directly influences the topics of my paintings (related not so much to the theatrical space itself, as to the human being existing in it). The second one makes my paintings come to life and gives them tree-dimensional characteristic.

Balthus (Polish-born French painter, 1908-2001)



Balthus, pseudonimo di Balthasar Kłossowski de Rola, è stato un pittore Francese di origine Polacca.
Lo stile di Balthus parte da una base classica ed accademica; tuttavia, anche se la sua tecnica e lo stile compositivo sono ispirati da quelli dei pittori pre-rinascimentali nelle sue opere sono presenti evidenti riferimenti allo stile di surrealisti come Giorgio De Chirico 1888-1978.
Ha dipinto soprattutto figure umane in un'epoca in cui l'arte figurativa è stata sostanzialmente ignorata e trascurata.
Attualmente è diffusamente riconosciuto come uno dei più importanti artisti del XX secolo.
