Daria Pietryka (1983)

Painter, architect, interior designer and scenographer based in Wrocław, Poland. She is a graduate of the Academy of Art & Design in Wrocław, Faculty of Interior Design and Designing, the School of Architecture at University College Dublin and the Wrocław University of Science & Technology, Faculty of Architecture. She designs interiors and architecture professionally. Since 2014 she has been running her own studio MIEJSCA (Places). She also works as an exhibition set designer and has cooperated with Wrocław European Capital of Culture 2016 and OP_ENHEIM. According to Daria, art is an inseparable element of architecture and design. She has been painting since she can remember and considers painting to be her first real passion. She treats it as a way to communicate with herself and the world.

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
