Vernissage of the individual exhibition of paintings and graphics by Ewelina Kołakowska entitled "Interludium / Niente" took place on September 13th.
“The title set of paintings and graphics, presented in the gallery space, is a continuation and development of the issues outlined in the artist’s graduation work: Individum / Preludium. The main theme of Ewelina Kołakowska’s composition, consistently black and white, still remains the naked human body, with the help of which the artist talks about desire, unfulfillment and the eternally unsatisfied longing for closeness. In Ewelina Kołakowska’s latest, extremely emotional canvases, the faces contorted in grimaces and, masterfully developed, slender hands of the presented figures (which are de facto carriers of the work’s content, interpretative signs for the viewer) are particularly important. Paintings are accompanied by a series of the latest, groundbreaking graphics, in which the artist explores the issue of the medium, creating the first prints in history of gravure printing plates designed and printed in 3D printing technology, which is the subject of the artist’s doctoral dissertation”. (Marcin Krajewski)
