Jungle2009 / acrylic, watercolour, canvas / 70 x 70 x 4 cm / no. 0108 Licence 3.0    Wróć
The painting was made following a long holiday trip that the artist took with her boyfriend in 2009. The return to Poland was a moment marked by melancholy, by a yearning for the exotic and a warmer climate – all this can be found in Jungle. A naked figure with a banana crown, lush tropical vegetation, and resting monkeys convey the idea of a perfect place on earth. The viewer is a voyeur here, the palm leaves and tall grass representing a barrier that must not be crossed. This inaccessible, wonderful world is bathed in sunlight.
