Kasia BlekiewiczAbout the Artist

Artist's Statement

"I was born in 1972, Gdańsk, Poland. In 1999 I completed my studies at the Academy of Fine Art in Gdańsk and obtained a Masters Degree in Painting in professor Maciej Świeszewski's atelier.

Signs that appear in my works come from my imagination. When being enchanted by nature I synthesize this world and portray it in the form of imaginary symbols. Among signs that I use there are ones that may be explained in relation to Christian, Egyptian or Greek symbology - symbols of fish, eye or wings; but also those that bear no relation to concrete forms - abstract symbols composing specific, complex systems like archaic, ideographic scriptures. Those signs are not symbols that should be directly read, they rather represent signs that are riddles tempting viewer's imagination. They lead back to ancient mystique but without the signposts."

"Znaki pojawiające się w moich pracach wypływają z mojej wyobrażni. Nasycając się urokami przyrody dokonuję syntezy tego świata i przedstawiam go w formie wymyślonych przeze mnie symboli. Wśród znaków, które używam są takie, które można wytłumaczyć odnosząc je do symboliki chrześcijańskiej: symbol ryby, oka czy skrzydeł, ale również te, które nie mają odniesień do konkretnych form, abstrakcyjne, układające się w specyficzne, złożone systemy niczym stare pismo ideograficzne. Owe znaki to nie symbole, które należy odczytywać wprost, to raczej znaki będące zagadkami kuszącymi fantazję oglądającego. Prowadzą one z powrotem ku prastarej mistyce ale bez drogowskazów."
