I, an alien series (2019) touches on the subject of femininity. It tries to represent a woman as a multi-dimensional being that embraces everything that she is. Her strengths and weaknesses blend collaborating and exchanging roles. An element of alienation might have various connotations. A woman viewing herself from the point of being a physical body and everything that this involves, and then moving towards mental or emotional estrangement,being conflicted within herself, and interpreting that conflict into the outside environment. The word “alien” has many definitions here such as being out of this world, coming from a fantasy land, considering oneself strange or eerie.

I am a Polish artist who currently lives in Rome, Italy. I have studied Intermedia art at Edinburgh College of Art and
I graduated in 2015. I also had a chance to spend one semester as an exchange student in SUNY Purchase, NY, learning new techniques and developing my skills.

The intention of my work is to create psychological landscapes, or scenes of tension, that would carry elements of mystery and eeriness. In the artistic process I'm searching for what's raw and instinctual in order to bring out personal expressiveness in the process of creation a state of suspension between different notions/realities. 

Drawing is one of my favorite methods of artistic activity as it gives me a great opportunity to have a more spontaneous approach to the creative process, introducing what's instinctive and bold. My work is often inspired by the sculptural pieces of other artists that evoke poignancy, eroticism, conflict, darkness, disturbance. Anything that provokes an emotional response in me might become a great source for my creative passion whether it's people, animals, art objects, dramatic compositions, or scenes from everyday life. I often use photography as a starting point and use images as a reference to further my artistic pursuit.
