Audio description

Seen from upper left to lower right, there are three brown-gray-and-black wolves running head-to-head through snow whose dirty white is broken with light shades of gray. The wolves’ elongated bodies, with straight unfurled tails and forward-thrust heads cast long dark gray shadows. The shadow in the foreground is lightened with blue on the left-hand side and disappears behind the left edge of the painting. The furs of the wolves, shimmering with various shades of golden beige, brown, gray and black, are painted with quick brushstrokes. The wolf in the foreground has the brightest coat. Its right foreleg is thrown forward, its left hind leg thrown back. Its body partially covers the silhouettes of the other two wolves. The wolf is a recurring motif in Rafał Borcz's work, reflecting the artist's fascination with wild, untamed and primitive nature. The artist paints what moves him, what has dynamism and energy. He often finds his inspiration in the wild forests of the Bieszczady Mountains. His paintings show empty landscapes, lonely trees, owls and wolves. His works express delight in the raw beauty of nature. Untitled was awarded the Grand Prix at the 35th National Competition of Painting “Bielska Jesień” in 2001.
