Ewa Juszkiewicz

born 1984

Through the deconstruction of traditional, historical portraits , Juszkiewicz enters into discussion with the visual conventions, that they represent and undermines their constant, indisputable character. In her work she critically refers to the ideals of female beauty known from the history of art, as well as contemporary perception of femininity. Ewa Juszkiewicz experiments with the shape of the female figure and face, balancing on the border between what is human and inhuman. Her paintings are classical in technique but subversive and rebellious in terms of content.
