About the art

Mandalena combines the classical with modernity, as she takes a timeless subject or topic and presents a modern rendition of it. She redefines and recreates a traditional idea, by imparting expression through brush strokes. She loves doing portraits and pays special attention to get a true likeness of the eyes as she firmly believes that our “eyes are the windows to our souls”. Her opinion is that the skillful use of the art isn’t only the attempt of reflection the reality but first of all, the most accurate devise of emotion.

She redefines and recreates a traditional idea, by imparting expression through brush strokes. She paints in a variety of mediums- oils, pastels, charcoals, and works on various creative projects. Magdalena loves doing portraits and pays special attention to get a true likeness of the eyes as she firmly believes that our “eyes are the windows to our souls”.

Magdalena was born and grew up in Poland where from an early age was obvious that her biggest love is painting.

In her last exhibition she presented an artwork collection which have shown the connection, but also the difference between the traditional and modern art. The goal of this collection was to pay attention on emotions which are the trait of modern art. Paintings were in couples, one was realistic and the other one was a description of feelings. Main part of the exhibition was dedicated to the metaphor of windows and the light pouring into the dark room.  In her work she used different type of technique which influenced for different form of perception the same window.  It was a theme which specially encouraged the reflection and made you think about the future. 
This exhibition was the key to the imagination and was inviting the visitors to an amazing trip on their reflection.
