Magdalena Kobierecka's painting

The glass is known in the art tradition for centuries. This medium symbolically invites to world of pure abstraction created in isolation from any meaning and rejection of any objective.

The paintings are created from unreal forms builded repatative configurations. The aim is to define pure energy. Just like glass does not have any structure, the painting’s of Magdalena Kobierecka are created as one time artistic acts by freely composing the pure forms found as light, colour and drawing.

Some of her works are dynamic and spontanous, in others have feeling of soft vibriting or spinning movement. There are also more static works, consisting of elements suspended in the space with more systematic composition. Her creation is like human emotions, they arise similarly and are as diverse.

The final effect Magdalena atteines with small amounts of colour glazes locally infiltrating each other. The supreme aim of her artistic exploration is to express the inner glow which adds the energetic fealings but also harmony of techniques.

Defining painting this way, the author invented her own technique consising of applying several layers of paint as they dry, selected as in sgraffiti. There two aspects in one creation: the painting act (applying) and the sculpting act (choosing). Before the act there only exist an idea, the creation is done all at the time without any space for error correction as in traditional painting techniques. The result are very unique, unreapeatable.
