Recent works

From the beginning of my artistic career, I have been inspired by forms and colours of different origin – natural and factitious, familiar and intrusive, which often do not match each other, but operate inseparably just like the elements of the world that surrounds us.

Art is action and a response to the surroundings, a record of what moves me

Agnieszka Kopczyńska-Kardaś

Nature is what inspires me the most – both the wild and unharnessed one, and the one altered by the human presence. In my abstract landscape paintings, where I encode my own reflections, impressions and longings using colors, textures and synthetic signs, I intend to discover a boundary between what is truly original and what is artificial.  Read more

“Space” series, 100 x 70 cm, tempera, pastels, 2014

A painting, where I’ve managed to depict the picture’s planes and the space issues in a more synthetic way.

“2001” series, 100 x 70 cm, tempera, pastels, 2001

It’s a special painting: it shows the depth of space with very different materials. This compilation of paint and shiny foil creates quite a surprising effect, a clash of textures and picture’s plans. It was inspired by the mountainous landscape of Crete – a place, where the smooth surface of the sea is cut by the huge mountain massifs.

“2001” series, 100 x 70 cm, tempera, pastels, 2001

This painting was previously shown in the National Museum in Gdańsk. It has been inspired by the poem, Labyrinth by the Sea, written by my favourite poet Zbigniew Herbert. It’s yet another example of the depth and air in a painting. Its vertical composition reflects the mountain ranges and deep rocky gorges, sometimes revealing the enormity of space that surrounds them.

Me in press

“Kopczyńska-Kardaś” tries to investigate the level of human interference with the nature and the inevitable civilizational progress. Moreover, she makes an attempt to explore the boundary between the pristine authenticity of the landscape and its artificiality. Obviously, as she records the progressive changes happening in nature, her paintings exhibit the highest level of dynamism.
