Damian Bąk focuses on the issue of light, which is fundamental to painting. He operates with illuminating light created mainly due to its value and with shining obtained thanks to color combinations. “Imitating the visible sphere of reality is not able to contain and express my emotions. Difficult or even impossible to see in the physical world, light can appear in the painting thanks to optics, but also imagination. The light that I see in my imagination and materialize in my paintings is the supreme beauty to me”.
