Art Review

psychologist Edward Nęcki, emotional arousal increases the likelihood of producing an unusual associations, positive emotions allow to reach a more abstract level of conceptual knowledge. Thanks to an abstract reasoning we associate distant facts better and we easier see similarities, use analogies, or synthesis or concept revolution. If the object or situation is surprising, but it raises our positive associations, it will encourage us to pursue further interpretation and increased intellectual effort. These processes are also held at levels of unconsciousness. Here there is a simultaneous combination of facts allowing for the collection of ambiguity. In this way, the recipient can accept different content and take other reasons. Thanks a lot for your time and for sharing your thoughts, Monika. Finally, would you like to tell us readers something about your future projects? How do you see your work evolving? € My next work is a continuation of exploration in white, which I undertook last year. It is search in the plurality of particles and wilderness of metaphors. From the original unity – into the multitude, of monolith - into dispersion. I am heading toward the existential areas - the transience of states and reactions, variation of life, inconstancy, being in motion.

Commotion, constant changes, pouring sand, time, decay and solidification of matter. I am returning to the elementary sculpting as the formation of matter, accompanied with accidentality. The inclusion of its unpredictability, puzzling into the circle of artistic activities planned.
