Todd Mrozinski, as an artist and art writer, focuses heavily on the natural world. This shows through in his writing, Portrait Society Show Packs Emotional Punch, where he compares even the more abstract painting to landscape. There is also obvious connection to the first artist in this writing, as he directly painted plants and flowers, be them imaginative or real. Even in the last part of this writing, he compares the vigor of piano play to that of “a seed pushing through soil”.
Mrozinski continues his relation to nature through his writing in “The Power of Great Paintings” as well, although maybe slightly more subdued. When looking at Jean-Simeon Chardin’s “A Bowl of Plums”, Mrozinski compares the still life to that of a landscape; “The haziness of the vase contour behind the sharpness of the peach creates space like a distant mountain range on a foggy day”. He also compares Paul Cezannes’s “Self Portrait” to a mountain, but this time in terms of paint strokes; “The clay-like paint is pushed, smeared and built like the mountain, Mount Sainte-Victoire…”.
Mrozinski, as developed previously, has a deep connection to the natural world, and conveys this through both his own artworks and his writing. Much of his personal work is depictions of natural scenes or plants, and his writing often refers back to nature and aspects of nature. This is Mrozinski’s voice, both in art and writing.
