As is the case with almost all of Sawicka’s work, the text conjures up associations with glossy magazine headlines. The characteristic lettering has been, somewhat clumsily, placed against a pale pink background that shows traces of brush or spatula strokes. This manner of presentation strips the words of their usual context – instead of glamour or colourful figures, there is only the monochromatic canvas. The words, stripped bare, unexpectedly gain new energy, begin to communicate emotions, and open themselves up to the viewer’s individual interpretation.
