Zofia Bogusz, a story...
The Atlantic Ocean floats perfectly between NYC and Poland. The trip I took across it as a kid, has fueled my interest in people's lives and identities. That is what my art is about. It is a collection of places visited and places to be, real or symbolic. Water and war are recurring themes that portray an experience of both disturbance and serenity. The realistic human subjects in my work make a focal connection to our common world. Graphite and wood give me control in making them refined and raw. Their environment, whether its social or natural, does not necessarily follow physical rules of space, creating a surreal free floating narrative, much like our memories. Color, oil paint, and the form of the surfaces support and enhance the atmosphere. In my work there is a strive for balance, and acceptance of the various dualities in our lives.
