The 12 paintings included in “The Colour of a Window” capture the view outside of Pszczonak’s large living room window, one painting for each month of a year. Conceived of in October 2020, the series records a specific moment in time during the Pandemic when Pszczonak was home with his young son. His son’s constant curiosity and interest in describing objects forced Pszczonak to rethink how he describes his surrounding world. The interior and exterior spaces illuminated in the paintings reveal an intimate domesticity and warmth, a space that we are both part of and reflected in.
