Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Magdalena Moskwa

Magdalena Moskwa

She studied at PWSSP in Łódź, graduating in 1996.
She deals with painting, photography, embroidery, creates objects-clothes of nonutilitarian character.
In painting, photography and objects she is interested in deep psychological portrait in which the body is a form of reliquary – "a can for a spirit". Her earlier works are quite close to the "classic" portrait images. But the point is not to give precisely the facial features, but to get the essence and energy. People from her paintings are stiffened and even "packed" in rigid forms. With this method of treatment the characters, when the overall form is buckled and reserved, every little gesture – hand movement, lock of hair, small wounds, scratches of silver in the background – acquires a meaning and builds expression of the image.

Born in 1967. She lives and works in Lodz.
1996 Master degree on Faculty of Textile and Faschion at the Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Łódź (Department of Textile Print)
1994 Scholarship from Minister of Culture and Arts
1996-1999 Assistant in conservation's studio in Museum of Art in Łódź
