Agata BogackaBORN 1976, Warszawa
Agata Bogacka's works painted after her graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts can be perceived as an emotional diary portraying closeness or loneliness of both the artist and her loved ones. Bogacka consistently used a smooth surface and did not create the illusion of depth. In time, her paintings became more and more abstract - she began to introduce a narrative which took place in many parts of the canvas at the same time. After her abstract pieces of work, introduced by her self-portraits - inspired by her reflection in a gold pendant she wore on her neck – she created the Plan of the Journey cycle. This cycle is yet another step she makes into the metaphoric, subjective space-landscape depicting individual fates.
