Mrozinski writes with a certain emotional conviction in his articles. He uses strong language for the sake of an intellectual criticism of the shows that he visited but there's also an apparently strong intimacy between him and the work that he engages with. You feel as if you know the artists yourself or that you share similar feelings of catharsis reading Mrozinski's descriptive phrases: "quiet mood", "massaged", and "plumpness" all create these feelings of familiarity. His description of Ted Brusubardis' video piece "Lietus in 3 Movements" in the Inside/Out exhibition at the Portrait Society Gallery was incredibly moving and brings you in to experience the work with him. "I feel my eyes start to swell with tears while witnessing the final sequence of the video, a duet comprised of footage from both performances which is edited and composed by the artist himself. As I emerge through the black curtains I leave the gallery teary eyed, with a renewed sense of the healing and transformative power of art.", he says. His voice in both of the articles reflects his personal passion for artists using their own voices to tell stories and invite you into their world.
