Magda Kwapisz Grabowska paints with the utmost sincerity, acknowledging the magic and communicative power of her creativity. Her painting focuses on the construction and deconstruction of the human figure and consciousness. Bodies that are rendered in an almost topographic fashion are splayed out across the picture. Using a chalky, limited palette Kwapisz-Grabowska creates human forms that are sculptural yet flat, anonymous yet familiar. Her art explores our world, our personality, and our vision of ourselves. She employs a particular distortion that delivers an everyman to her audience, an intimate humanoid vessel representing the spirit of any one of us. Expressively posed figures overlap and coalesce with limbs that curl and turn back towards the body. Large expanses of color are rendered with a chiaroscuro forming cavernous shadowy pockets that draw our awareness in. These areas are complemented by the ambling scrawled line work that add definition to the composition. Kwapisz Grabowska graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poland in 1999 (Graphic Workshop and Painting Department). Since then her paintings have received attention in Poland and internationally with the recognition in the 2010 Chelsea International Fine Art Competition in New York which was juried by Goggenheim Museum in NY. In 2015 she participated in course of theory of art and painting at the Universit채t der K체nste in Berlin. She has presented her art in many individual and group exhibitions all over word including Poland, Germany, USA, United Kingdom and Italy. She lives and works in Berlin, Germany. www.magdakwapisz.de
