Upon closer inspection of Stabrowski’s paintings, it is possible to notice a real as well as a symbolic world, but there are also some surreal manifestations. Here is the painting of the Capri Grotto, looking like a jaw opening up, as if it is ready to swallow whatever comes its way. This surreal story draws the viewer closer to yet another reality, where a mysterious world of subconscious imagery is revealed to them.
