I consider drawing diploma in Joanna Kaiser’s atelier in 2011 my biggest artistic achievement. It is because it tough me a lot and I was able to gain very important experience. The diploma ended up being exhibited in in Łącznik Gallery, Cracow as my solo exibition in November 2011. Technique and size which I choose is closer to painting than usual drawing. In my works I usually use central composition, in particular basic divisions like the one between earth and sky or life and death. Especially, the landscapes in religious paintings are fascinating in my view. For example, in the composition of altars saints were standing on the ground, but at the same time they could reach Heaven. Somehow, they transfix both. I also try to transfigure emotion which I fell after contact with a particular landscape, just like catching a temporary story on a film. Plural forms reflect my wish to experience as much as I can and they their creation defends me from emptiness, which fills empty spaces in life. In the very existence of these forms I lock up my anxiety, and swallow the key. With almost all of my work I came up while traveling. The biggest inspiration for me is ancient Greek art and landscape, which I have been able to admire many times. Also art from periods like Renaissance and Baroque has a big influence on me. I really enjoy outdoor painting and spending my time in museum. Since I remember, whenever I could I have always been close and experienced other artists. Thanks to that I don’t feel lonely and often find my own feelings and memories in others’ works. Through my art I want to come closer to people, even if it was only one person that would be my greatest achievement.
