The long and nasty winter is gone, it’s time to put away the hats and coats and pull out your spring wardrobe. Basia Bańda’s smallformat piece is an affirmation of spring and vitality. The central figure is encircled by exuberant vines, the black rectangle covering its eyes serves as a metaphor of being “blinded by spring.” Bańda’s work is, to some degree at least, symbolic, the artist coding her reflections and feelings, and while sometimes we succeed in breaking this code, there are instances when its meaning remains deeply hidden.
