Joanna Borkowska

“Nature is the source of my creative energy and vision. I think that the creative process is a collaborative effort, but the artist is responsible for the ultimate outcome. I work in a partnership with Nature in order to prepare a space in which I can establish contact with the essence of a form – either from the material world or the world of ideas. A painting gradually evolves from the mutual discovery and exploration between the artist and this form. The resulting piece of art develops its own independent existence, becoming a new form creating a potentially infinite number of interactions and interrelations with the viewer.”

After debuting in 2009 with a solo exhibition at the National Museum in Szczecin, Joanna Borkowska has exhibited in Italy, Monaco, Switzerland, and Spain, as well as throughout Poland.
