Darek Pali’s paintings are characterized by a lack of perspective and scant chiaroscuro. However, it is the intense contrasting colors such as blues, reds, bottle greens and yellows that dominate the canvas. Each image has one dominant color that draws the viewer’s attention. The artist creates atmosphere by using intertwining warm and cold colors that build up the decorative aspect of the works. The figures of people, animals, plants and objects are flattened and simplified, which introduces associations with Expressionism, particularly the works of Franz Marc, founder of the “Blue Rider” group.
Color in the works of Darek Pali is the most important. It is what primarily attracts the attention of the onlooker and forms the basis of his painting. It is undeniably the result of the artist’s formal search, as well as a kind of transmitter of his personal emotions.
