Artist Statement

Marysia Gacek draws from a wide range of sources including art history, film, 17th-century sculpture, Slavic rituals, and the topography of southern Poland, specifically the moorlands at the base of the Tatra Mountains. These panoramic scenes are composed of a mixture of lived and imagined events, and explore themes of femininity, fantasy, and memory.
