The images are painted in cycles… I work on several paintings at the same time and it can take even several years. Tentatively called the „they” and „them”. The former relate to the forms, to man; the latter, to objects, symbols, landscapes, objects. Painting a picture, you can start „almost from nothing”, but this „nothing” is almost always a certain observation of the world -a fragment seen very suddenly and very intensely. The sources of my experience are often simple objects, micro-fragments of nature. This admiration of mine for the world, the particles of which I discover, where the whole is still a mystery, becomes the main function of the image. I arrange my compositions by combining strong, thick strokes (outline of the image) and putting together colour contrasts (the duality of everything that surrounds us). Building images on a seemingly well-known reality, where painting is the result of synthesis of many fractional events. I would like to maintain the balance of the participation of all the senses (empiricism and imagination). Katarzyna Rymarz
„Epigram for a neighbour” is a summer painting cycle consisting of several oil images. (…) The inspiration for creating this colourful cycle comes from personal, private experiences and observation of the immediate neighbourhood. The paintings are subjective impressions based on life anecdotes. They were created on hot summer days, when people move away from enclosed spaces into open ones connected with nature. Many of them are peculiar „human landscapes”, where nature permeates the human silhouette. All of them are constructed on a square plan, set in a fantasy landscape, intentionally emanating lush, luminous colours suggestive of summer light. In the process of creating the cycle, many concise notes were created, full of out-of-context conversations overheard through open windows. These notes had a significant impact on the final painting context in which the characters appeared.
