Educated in Academy of Fine Arts, Gdansk, Poland, and Goldsmiths University, London. Her work refers to the struggle between Eros and Thanatos, two basic human instincts in life.
Organic images, blurred portraits, abstract and reality, glamour and colour of blood, combination of nature and chaos, power and repulsion, fear and confusion. Only small parts are revealed, suggesting vulnerability and ambiguity of the fragmented vision. The pained body dominates the space of an uncanny dimension. It alludes to the sociological space.
What is art and who is an artist?
Generally term ‘Art’ can describe number of things like an object of art, process of creating fine art, studying creative skills and creative thinking, communication through artistic disciplines. I would like to focus on the meaning of ‘Art’ as a process of creation by stimulation of thoughts, passions and emotions. Art has a power to bring up our deep, unconscious mind into light. It is a loving embrace of Eros and Thanatos – two basic human instincts in life. Libido-life instinct and Death Drive – death instinct, which were described by Sigmund Freud.
Clinch of this two passions generates creation of my work. I would describe my art as obsessive self-portraits, organic images, abstract and reality, glamour and colour of blood, combination of nature and chaos, power and repulsion, fear and confusion. It is based on very personal experiences. I deal with existential emotions and states of mind. It is about human drama and human dilemma. It’s about sexual power and sexual desires. They are dramatic, however, more psychological dramatic rather than sexually dramatic. My images involve some kind of paradox connected to the continuum of life and death. The dead are presented as if they were alive and the images of living remind us of death and bodily decomposition. The work convey burden and deadly gravity – the End.
