About Justyna Adamczyk

Born 1981, Opoczno, Poland 2007 MFA, Academy of Fine Arts, Wroclaw, Poland 2002 – 2007 BA, Academy of Fine Arts, Wroclaw, Poland 1996 – 2001 High School of Fine Arts (conservation of architecture), Radom, Poland Artist’s statement Justyna Adamczyk has proven to be an artist with an unusually deep consciousness and with great willpower to create. To describe her art with a classic definition of painting would not be enough. One of the reasons is that she uses a variety of media which mix together. She correctly draws conclusions from those experiments and implements them into her work. Distinct, organic spots of paint which create discreet physiological allusions, splash and splatter in various proportions on the unprimed, fine cotton canvas changing the work into a piece of art which becomes a place of nearly per formative action. Justyna Adamczyk’s language can be gentle and full of allusions as well as very literal. Adamczyk’s painting proves that art is not about building forms, but rather about showing the forces which govern them. When it comes to the composition, she often chooses one dominant element, a form, which takes on all the impact and draws attention to itself. The way it is constructed and positioned among other elements conveys a strong desire to explain all doubts. Sometimes, there are many ‘dominating’ elements, but they do not compete with each other thanks to clear rules of hierarchy. Her works communicate a difficult range of topics such as feminism, sexuality, the existence of a relationship with herself and with the world. PhD. Przemyslaw Pintal
