The concept of my present art is based on obtaining recycled materials (for example: glass from bottles, vases, etc.) and creating something new, in this case lamps and glass madalas. My goal is to create something completely new based on the available materials, I give them a second life in a new form, in a new home. I would like to give a second life to items that are thought to be useless or destined to be thrown away. I enjoy creating a new shape, new destination, new quality, and a new life for them. I know that art is not necessary for life and I don’t want to produce more waste by buying new materials when there is so much out there already. If I can use second-hand things, materials that I can recycle and use safely, then I do it. This is very important to me. If I can care for nature in small ways, and at the same time create something with a new value, then I am very happy. Ecological art arose out of the need to awaken people from the feeling of being the rulers of our planet – because we are part of nature. We are here to serve her, not the other way round. People have forgotten how connected we are to nature and how dependent we are on it.
I am a graduate of the University of Zielona Góra in Poland, where I completed two master's degree in the following fields: Animation of Culture (which means : organizer of cultural activities) and Visual Arts (at that time: Artistic Education in the Fine Arts Sector). I completed my artistic diploma (2016)
in the Drawing and interdisciplinary Studio (ISW UZ) under the direction of prof. Radosław Czarkowski. Then I started my doctorate studies at the Faculty of Humanities in the field of History. After I gave up my third-level studies after the first year, I appreciate the experience I gained there.
First of all, I had the opportunity to teach Film History and Art History, i. e. the subjects that coincided with my interests. It is also worth mentioning that the subject of my doctoral thesis was closely related to art : 'Carnality aesthetics based on the works of 20th and 21st century artists'. I have been living and working in Oxford for more than four years now.
The work I do is a result of my inner need to develop, to constantly search for myself, to confront myself and the world, and also a way of dealing with the difficulties of life. I am inspired by the everyday life of the people I meet and by the images they capture somewhere on the fly. The youthful search in the area of analogue photography, which I temporarily abandoned, is constantly breaking through in my works. They can be seen in framing, in contrast, in search of black or texture. Photography, however, was no longer enough in itself, becoming the starting point for further actions. Over time, it became clear that the characteristic feature of my work was the process, but it was not understood as a recurring issue, but as an inseparable method of work. In my works I use various techniques and materials. Everything depends on a given project, its specificity, or simply my inner need.
That's why I'm far from classifying and focus only one disciplines.
Due to the variety of techniques used, I identify myself more with interdisciplinary artists
than with one single artistic discipline. What I am, you can read best from my artistic work
and social activities. If I undertake something, I get involved with it myself.
