Artist Krzysztof Iwin says this storybook-like painting depicts two boys in the process of catching large earthworms (rosówki), which come to the surface of the earth on rainy evenings. "The rosówki will serve the boys as bait for fishing," he explains.
Krzysztof Iwin is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland. His body of work is largely figurative with elements of surrealism. Showing frozen fragments of a reality that does not exist, Krzysztof attempts to capture the menacing, sometimes macabre beauty of the search for meaning.
