ARTIST STATEMENT

I deal with art because it is practically the only space where I always felt perfectly in my place, completely happy, fulfilled and strong.


Author of the famous book Fragmenty Lustra (a poetic and intimate record of creative self-awareness and women's experiences, published in 2011 by the SO/T Publishing House); Scholar of the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara. On a daily basis, he works in his studios in Warsaw and Pomarance in Tuscany. She graduated from the Sculpture Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw (Grzegorz Kowalski's studio - diploma in 1994). She studied Persian and Italian philology at the University of Warsaw and sculpture in Italy and Iran. Her adventure with sculpture began with her fascination with the culture of Italy and Iran, where she spent her youth. Osiecka creates abstract and figurative sculptures. She works mainly in stone, especially marble, which is her first material. She has participated in many international stone sculpture symposiums.

CRITICISM

Figurative sculpture, the female body and figure have become for Monika Osiecka a direct tool for studying the semantics of feminity, and her own work has become a form of self-discovery, a method of self-exploration’. Abstraction and figuration are two poles; two worlds (...).
