Róża Litwa

BORN 1982, Warszawa

“In principle, I don’t comment on my paintings. This is because I’m afraid of the violation of my privacy. These are highly intimate stories,” Litwa says about her paintings. In 2008, she graduated with an honorary mention from the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, with a degree in painting under Prof. Jarosław Modzelewski and annexes in Prof. Mirosław Duchowski’s Studio of Art in Public Space and in drawing under Assistant Professor Czesław Radzki. In 2007, Litwa won a competition for a mural painting at the Centrum subway station in Warsaw, and the piece was later successfully realised. At the turn of 2008/2009, she had her first solo show at Warsaw’s m2 gallery.

Description

A few brush strokes were all the artist needed to outline a female figure, cut in half. The torso is clearly separated from the rest of the body, leaning beyond the right edge of the canvas. There may be a real story behind the image, but Roża Litwa’s paintings do just as well without commentary, exposed to the viewer’s own, personal stories.

“My paintings stem from a need, a naive one perhaps, to define a personalised view of the world. They are an attempt to elaborate on our invariably stormy relationships with ourselves and with others,” writes the artist in a commentary to her graduation project exhibition. “All the paintings of this series have one theme in common – the individual, the body, feelings, and emotions. We see recurring images of faces, heads with braids, female figures, couples hugging, pregnant women, families with kids. There also appears the characteristic motif of a shattered human figure, bringing to mind the work of Andrzej Wróblewski,” says Matylda Prus of the m2 Gallery.
