Further Biographical Context for Witold Bezuszko
Born in 1955, Witold Bezuszko was primarily influenced by the 1970s growing up. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and progress in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the dominant strains of the previous decade. Conceptual art developed as a influential movement, and was in part an evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the works of art into the sprawling outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal reflections, creating esoteric and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years prior, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly powerful figures worldwide. New York maintained an influential position in the international art world, ensuring that global artists continued to flock to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. n Japan and Korea, artists associated with the Mono-Ha movement focused on encounters between natural and industrial materials such as stone, glass, cotton, sponge, wood, oil and water, arranging them in mostly unaltered, ephemeral states. The works focused on the interplay between these various elements and the surrounding space, and had a strong interest in the European ideas of phenomenology.
