The Warsaw Insider has teamed up with Clotilde Simonis of Simonis Gallery and Latająca Galeria for the opening of "Summer" a new show from painter, photographer and Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts alumnus Kasia Domańska.
The exhibition is drawn from a series of paintings depicting the summer season through a dreamlike vision. By employing images of sunny beaches, bright blue sky, beach umbrellas, gentle waves, beautiful women in warm-hued bikinis and children playing in the sand, Ms Domańska presents a carefree, lazy summer, while at the same time challenging the definition of beauty with a carefully maintained distance.
There is an artificiality and a certain absence of passion in her paintings, which, given the naturalness and warmth of the subjects, foster an oxymoronic atmosphere.
Catch the show Wednesday to Saturday, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, through the end of September at Latająca Galeria, ul. Burakowska 9.
