Mixed media on Japanese Izumi paper | 2022
“Bound by Blood” is a series of work that uses Japanese mythology, literature and spirituality as the core of its artistic explorations. Between the uncanny dreams and surreal tales, Skowrońska’s paintings guide the viewer into the ambiguity of the world, relationships, and femininity perceived as a fusion of beauty and hostility. Drawing on the work of the Japanese writer Fumiko Enchi, in this series of paintings, femininity is presented in the form of an organic motif, repeated in each of the works, in an almost obsessive, yet at the same time controlled and ambiguous way. The work is fluid and rejects binary divisions of the perception of the world, between matter and energy, body and mind, space and time, male and female, human and non-human things.
Whispers was painted on two separate pieces of paper, intended by the artist to be presented together. If purchasing framed, the artist left a small margin on the paper so the works can be overlayed so that no gaps show between the paper. If purchasing unframed, you will be receiving two paintings on paper that make up the painting as a whole.
