My interests include vanitas iconography, relations of modernism with hermeticism, relations of painting processes with physical and chemical phenomena. Using unconventional painting methods, I combine figurative and abstract elements. I am interested in the incompletion and fragmentation of the processes of perception and imaging. Referring to the idea of “an image accessible at a glance”, I use the aesthetics of destruct and non finito. Most of the exhibition projects I carried out related to corporeality and mortality (“Late Symptoms of Death”), relations between modernism and the Renaissance and antiquity (“Details/Spaces” in the State Gallery of Art in Sopot), witch trials (“Incantations” and “Nietota” at Wrocław Contemporary Museum) and changes in the natural environment (“Heliotropie”, “Science/Fiction” and “La force des plantes” at the Musee des Arts et Metiers in Paris).
