OPINIONS

An important element is the artistic consciousness of her way and the place where she is located. We feel the hunger of the colors shown as an attempt to cast them as the most intense in the pictures, see through them that the world is „variable, dynamic, surprising and therefore beautiful”… it is the rebellion against pseudo-objective delusion of local color. Emilia G±sienica-Setlak is aware of the fact that „color can dominate the whole picture, can dominate all the other works in the museum hall” – it is disappearing knowledge today. Dr Rafa³ Borcz

The color sensitivity and the ability to build summaries based on chromatic harmonies is perhaps one of the most important assets of Emilia G±sienica. The second is a constant tendency to go beyond the form once established and closed, continuous experiment in which formal decisions are born spontaneously and determine initially unpredictable directions, toward which draws attention of still searching Author. The final choice seems to be quite justified, even if the arguments are not disclosed and will remain forever in the realm of the most subjective content. Dr Ewa Herniczek

The „Woo” cycle, which glorifies the colors, reflections and adopting them matter, without losing on narrative and lyricism, is the culmination of the artist’s previous activities. The penetrating them female figure is only an excuse for artistic exploration made by Emilia and attempt to continue the story initiated by the masters of painting, such as Kandinsky, Matisse, Klimt or even Chagall. What is more, the work of the Artist does not lose its freshness and consistency in spite of salon convention. Katarzyna Kowalska, MA

The backbone of the exhibition is made up of the latest Emilia G±sienica-Setlak’s series “Lux In Tenebris”, whose title is a reference to an evangelist or Bertolt Brecht’s play, but in the artist’s intention focusing on purely artistic issues. “Light in Darkness” is to present the physical nature of human existence devoid of cultural contexts. The paining medium enables the artist to look at the human body differently from photographers’ lenses, filters and shutters. The people presented in the pictures are frozen, limited only by gravity. They do not interact with the environment, they do not go about their daily routines, they wait… for the light shed freely on their skins to take out a subjective history described by the painter’s brush, a history of colours, shapes, textures and the anatomic relationships that govern them. Additionally, the Soma Space exhibition will host the artist’s works from her other series, including “Woo”, “Uninhabited” and “Interim Form”. Marcin Setlak, MA
