He continues to gain attention with his works in local exhibitions including our Inaugural Exhibition and Art For Life (2016 & 2018). In this recent series of work, Rutkowski collages paper patterns for clothing as formal elements in his acrylic paintings. His most recent body of work focuses on a triad of themes from the covid-19 influenced still life to science –fiction. What were abstract works have in these turbulent times taken on representational compositions.
