Lubomir Tomaszewski is Honored by the UN in Geneva, Switzerland


We are very proud to announce that Lubomir Tomaszewski is being honored for his lifetime of accomplishments with the Exhibition “Emotions” in Geneva, Switzerland, at the United Nation’s Palace of Nation’s Mezzanine Gallery.  Tomaszewski has been showing his artwork with transFORM Gallery since 2011 and his been our most successful artist.  His compelling sculptures now grace the homes and enhance the private collections of art enthusiasts across the New York City Metropolitan Area.  His artwork captures the raw energy of nature in metal, wood and stone and depicts the innate character of animals and free moving dancers.  His work is truly representative of our common human experiences of emotion and expression.  We are grateful to Lubomir for sharing his artwork with us over the years and congratulate him on this great honor and achievement.

Lubomir Tomaszewski-transFORM-transFORM Gallery-transFORM Art Gallery-UN in Geneva-art-gallery-art gallery-United NationsAbout “Emotions”

Organized by the Polish and U.S. mission in Geneva in cooperation with the Department of Culture of the United Nations, for just over three weeks, the main building of the UN in Geneva was invaded by “Emotions”. Lubomir Tomaszewski-transFORM-transFORM Gallery-transFORM Art Gallery-UN in Geneva-art-gallery-art gallery-United Nations  From June 2-23, 2014, in the main gallery of the Palace of the United Nations Mezzanine, was one of the most important exhibitions of Lubomir Tomaszewski. 

Lubomir Tomaszewski-transFORM-transFORM Gallery-transFORM Art Gallery-UN in Geneva-art-gallery-art gallery-United NationsThis exhibition – with the eloquent title “Emotions by Lubomir Tomaszewski” – reveals an important element of the artist’s works: human emotions and their transmission. The original intent of the curator, Catherine Rij, is to present the work according to this very key – emotions. In the more than 800m² of this unique place, where they staged works by Andy Warhol in 2013, was hosted the outstanding artistry of Lubomir Tomaszewski. This world-class artist represents the mainstream of experimental realism, which has been growing continuously since 1966, when he moved to New York.

In the main building of the United Nations, these amazing works about freedom were presented for the first time, which the artist has worked on for over a dozen years. Lubomir Tomaszewski-transFORM-transFORM Gallery-transFORM Art Gallery-UN in Geneva-art-gallery-art gallery-United NationsAt more than 2.5 meters high, the sculpture “Freedom Taking Flight,” was exposed against the background of Lake Geneva and the Alps.  The history of the artist’s works was announced through the presentation of more than 100 works – paintings, sculptures and porcelain.  Art lovers from around the world were able to see the most important compositions of more than a half-century of the artist’s oeuvre.  Lubomir Tomaszewski-transFORM-transFORM Gallery-transFORM Art Gallery-UN in Geneva-art-gallery-art gallery-United NationsThe Commission’s Cultural Palace of Nations, when deciding which artist to invite, was not only enthusiastic about Lubomir Tomaszewski’s attitude towards freedom and peace, but also amazed by the unusual technique by which he creates the paintings and sculptures.

Lubomir Tomaszewski is the founder of the “Emotionalists” group, and has to his credit more than 150 individual and collective exhibitions that have been presented throughout the world. His work can be found in the collections, among others: Victoria and Albert Museum in London, National Museum in Warsaw, National Museum in Krakow, Warsaw Uprising Museum, Hale Museum in Germany, Robert Marston INC., Marvin Gilman, Lighting Services INC., Lawrence Rockefeller and the Rockefeller family, Jimmy Carter – President of the United States, T. Komine of Kyowa Bank in Tokyo, Japan and many more.

Lubomir Tomaszewski, whom The New York Times called “a sculptor of movement,” was present at the opening ceremony of the exhibition on June 4. Lubomir Tomaszewski-transFORM-transFORM Gallery-transFORM Art Gallery-UN in Geneva-art-gallery-art gallery-United Nations Thanks to the universal nature of his creativity, Tomaszewski stirred emotions among the international audience and visitors at the exhibit, who were able to discover the works of this unique artist anew.
