About Katarzyna Gajewska

About the artwork

This piece; portrait of Isabella Rossellini was part of the artist's ongoing project ''Icons''. From the artist statement: ''There is something of a sentimental desire to paint celebrities, historical, musical, fashion and artistic personages, icons and sex goddesses. I am not sure if it’s my fascination with the phenomenon of the strong female characters or simply the celebration of the effect one person can have on another.

Katarzyna Gajewska states ''Among my depictions are Marie Antoinette, Coco Chanel, Maria Callas, Liza Minnelli, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Harry, Louise Bourgeois, and Lady Gaga.... Painted from magazines, newspapers, publicity photographs and from memory they are close-ups which I am rendering personally with my fingers. Painting with my hands often allows me to make close-ups much deeper than they really are. My portraits are like multilayered cocoons, profoundly intimate, sexual or innocent. Psychological topography, still glances, crucial in their expression is uncovered in layers of paint. Faces are like language, pulsing and inspiring. My portraits are my own personal form of communication.''
