We would like to express our deepest gratitude first and foremost to Julian Stanczak. This publication and the radiant exhibition it accompanies would not have been possible without his passion and singular vision. Julian’s wife, Barbara, and their children, Krzys and Danusia, have been warm and welcoming presences throughout the conception of the show. Special thanks to Neil Rector for his guidance, support and invaluable insight. And a final thank you to Eileen Costello who has contributed a thoughtful and perceptive essay which sheds new light on the work of this important artist.
