Exhibition of Paintings, Rugs and Handmade Paper
By DOROTA SKONECZNA
9-28 September 2013
“For almost a decade I have been developing my passion for art and design, being inspired by nature as well as the cultural and historical features of the places I have lived in and travelled to.
Each individual piece (rug, handmade paper, painting or drawing) represents my love of colour and light and their metaphysical existence in every part of the environment.
Handmade paper became another medium I could use for painting. I found something magical in its transformation from natural plant life to spiritual artistic composition and texture.
One can never completely control the process or plan the final effect. Once the screen catches a moment, every image is unrepeatable and precious. It is a very special approach to the process of creation, giving each artwork its own independent life.
The greatest example of this spiritual mastery has been achieved through Icon painting and remains a great fascination to me. Given the opportunity to develop and study, I spent five years at the Lodz Academy of Fine Arts creating my own interpretations of this extraordinary artistic custom”
