Krzysztof says this intimate painting depicts a poor grandmother selling her small items on a blanket, a common sight in marketplaces. She sits patiently on a small box, with items of little use, included a cassette tape and one ping pong paddle. The watch, set to 11 o'clock, may further reference the character's age and situation. An endearing and emotionally evocative work.
Krzysztof Iwin is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland. His body of work is largely figurative with elements of surrealism. Showing frozen fragments of a reality that does not exist, Krzysztof attempts to capture the menacing, sometimes macabre beauty of the search for meaning.
