Artist Krzysztof Iwin describes this painting as a genre scene, portraying everyday life. A woman walks her dog in the evening. However, in his typical style, Krzysztof adds a dramatic twist with storm clouds gathering above the characters. The woman stares slightly blankly toward the viewer, while her animal companion looks intently at her, shifting the roles of who is in charge in the moment.
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.
