Daria Pietryka(1983)

I am fascinated by ambiguities. I strive for my paintings to be multi-layered, both in a metaphorical and a formal sense. I think this is the key to the balance between form and content that I am looking for. The stories that are contained in my work are drawn from reality – from situations, people, or nature. While painting, I translate them into metaphors, which I dress in colors, shapes, textures, shadows and half-shadows. I think art should be thought-provoking, so I am glad when the viewer interprets images in a language close to them. Then, what is personal to me becomes generally available through painting, and my work takes on layers and new meanings. It starts to live. DP
