Madness and civilization


Honorata Gawronska Poland 1980

I paint because it is what I love to do. When it is time to paint I forget everything else.
My paintings are devoid of people, but contain traces of their presence.
Surroundings, ordinary places, are extraordinary in this same time.
My work is about the spaces.
It is important to me that the viewer brings their own experiences and interpretations to my work.
In my project I focus on interiors.
Empty places are full of beauty, lots of things happen there. Just me, places and my imagination.
"Simplicity of form is not relevant to simplicity of experience" - Robert Morris
I am interested in painting as a purpose in itself. I am interested in going beyond painting.
In my paintings I am drawn to the balance between abstraction and recognized forms.
For me this sense of simplicity is full of calm and harmony a longing for perfection.
I choose isolation, enclave but not loneliness.
Creation emanates with sensitivity.
Everyone is a part of World of interiors. Diversity, multiplicity of places is obvious. It is independent of me in what kind of interiors I am staying sometimes but in what kind of interiors I would like to be, that is only my choice.
Nowadays the past blends together. Personally somewhere deeply inside I am feeling nostalgia for a past which I have never been witness.
50`, 60`, 70’- extraordinary, retro and modern in the same time.
My interest is in are huge interiors, where a space does not hinder our possibilities. It is only up to us how we will use this hidden potential.

My story is about the places which I have seen and those I create in my imagination. I want my art to be a point of entry in a journey of exploration – the means of contemplation of the place or object.
Everyone is able to tell a tale and everyone can use a potential of my interiors according to their needs. I would like to challenge your imagination and sensitivity.
