Madness and civilization


Statement

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.

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.
