The characters from the works af Father Janusz Stanisław Pasierb (1929-1993) are aware that they are part of the order af nature with its cycles af birth and death. Yet at the same time their human nature makes them rebel against the law that circumscribes their canditian. This rebellious impulse seems to express man's perennial desire to transform his transitary existence by venturing into the realm of artistic creatian. Art, which bears the reflection of its creators and their world, does immortalise, at least in sense of 'non omnis moriar'. This is why man has always sought in it a premise of salvation and release from the determinism of the natural world. Works of high culture born out of a longing for immortality are best suited to achieve permanence as in them the process of spiritualisation of matter proceeds most thoroughly. It is a process which affects all of man's products because each of them bear the imprint of his dual existential structure (matter and spirit). Far Pasierb art appears ta be culture's eternal 'now' because both artworks as well as man's achievements of all kinds reach out into a transcendent order.
