Jerzy Werbel

Jerzy Werbel attended the University of Education and Art in Poland, where his career as a painter began. After several years of developing work in Poland he decided to embark on a drastic resettlement to Canada by way of going through Germany.

After a considerably difficult move, he established a studio space in the South West Region of Ontario. During this time, he developed a noteworthy perspective of his newly acquired homeland. Over the next 20 years, Jerzy traveled across Canada, indulging in the lush visual landscapes of freedom. Jerzy currently continues his travels though a land he now calls his own. Inspired by the vast Canadian landscape, he creates lasting works of art using high-quality materials and his innate talent.

Jerzy describes his work in an artist statement: “At first glance our land is a seemingly peaceful utopia. It’s violent nature of constant evolution is so subtle to the eye it is often overlooked. Our land is a continuous installation, both a burial ground and a place of birth. I admire the static elusion our landscape represents. My work is a documentation of nature’s latest installment.
