Artist Agnieszka Potrzebnicka says this calming oil painting represents a memory of a beautiful place called Turtul in the heart of the Suwalki region - an area in the north of Poland. "I discovered this place in the summer of 2019. It is quiet, full of wet thickets reflecting in the water." Agnieszka worked to convey the meditative quality of this special place.
Artist Agnieszka Potrzebnicka comments on honoring nature with her dramatic surrealist floral portraits. Having worked as a painting conservator after college, as well as being a lover of nature, Agnieszka felt called to interpret our modern world with elements from our history. Her studio is filled with books and plants that inspire her. Once inspiration hits, she paints with oil on canvas. "My art expresses my own personal need of a contact with the world of nature, my longing for a lost relationship with nature, that we as humans used to have, but we lost it in the time of progressive industrialization." When she is not painting, you can find her tending to her small urban garden, in which she grows various plants and vegetables, as well as spending quality time with her daughter. Potrzebnicka’s creations have been showcased in various exhibitions in Poland. She graduated with a Master of Fine Arts from Akademia Sztuk Pieknych in Warsaw, Poland.
