Aleksandra Szewczuk - Artist profile

Creating art is for me a process of entering into myself, cleansing the mind and focusing on being here and now. For several years I have been practicing the Mindfulness therapeutic method, which I started, also used during the creative process. My works are expressive abstractions of my inner life. I paint by scanning what is happening at a given moment, not only inside of me, but also by recording everything from the outside world. I am aware that a man is built from his past and it also influences what I record in my paintings. Painting is more for me trying to release the mind “from everything” that surrounds it, what is in it, what blocks it by listening to what is happening in the present moment. Thanks to this, art acts on me therapeutically, while the recipient of my work has the opportunity to look inside himself through his reception at a given moment of his own reality.

Aleksandra Szewczuk is a polish artist working in the stream of expressionist abstraction colorfield painting. Based in Sopot. Born in 1982 in Gdynia, graduated in 2008 with master degree visual arts at the Gdansk Academy of Fine Arts. One of the first graduate students in the studio of professor Jerzy Ostrogórski. Takes part in exhibitions in the country and abroad. Her works are in private collections in Poland, the United States, Australia, Sweden, Spain and in the base collection of the National Sate Gallery in Sopot.
