Jadwiga SawickaBORN 1959, Przemyśl
In Sawicka’s art, “less” definitely means “more.” Her style, based on simple lettering, is instantly recognisable. Since the 1990s, the artist has been studying the relationship between text and image, creating paintings representing short, militant slogans suspended in abstract space. She has also redone in this manner her earlier, expressionist works from the 1980s. Besides painting, Sawicka is the author of objects, installations, and, in association with Marek Horwat, photographs and text prints. She is the author of several series of paintings and photographs representing fragments of clothes and cosmetics accompanied by fictional quasi-advertising slogans. She graduated from the Cracow Academy of Fine Arts, with a degree in Prof. Jerzy Nowosielski’s studio in 1984.
