The currents of my lifetime are double sided. Originally brought up in Poland, moved to Iceland at the age of 15 - where most of my artistic lookout developed. My work explores the relationship between multiculturalism and life as performance. With influences as diverse as Ginsberg and Francis Bacon, new tensions are distilled from both traditional and modern structures. What starts out as vision soon becomes corroded into a manifesto of power and abstraction as momentary derivatives become distorted through diligent and personal practices. I aspire to utilize my work by cooperating with other artists/designers and art galleries.
Polish and Czechoslovak mythology and folklore stem from the folklore and beliefs rooted in Slavic religion also known as Slavic paganism which was observed by the Slavs before the introduction of Christianity in the period from the 9th to the 12th century. To commemorate our pagan culture, heritage and history I interpreted 5 goddesses through a detailed folk inspired set of illustrations which are executed in various forms - through prints, a mural and wood carvings.
