Ewa Żochowska is a contemporary painter who lives and works in Łódź, Poland. She graduate of the Academy of Fine Art in Łódź is also an expert in printmaking. Her studio is also a place where local cultural events and art workshops for children and adults take place.
Nevertheless, it is oil painting that is predominant in her artistic activity. She has developed her unique technique of applying paint onto the canvas. She puts thin layers of medium one onto another to achieve rich velvety surfaces and matt sophisticated colors.
As Ewa explains herself, “I absorb everything - images, words, sounds. The whole world around me is the inspiration for the picture: the elements of nature, products of culture, everyday life, history, the world of dreams. Everything about the human being, because the human being is the main subject of my work. The reality is filtered through the inner world of my feelings and emotions, digested by the viscera and compressed by the analytical mind. The whole process results in the image, the painting, which is a kind of energy bridge and exchange platform of thoughts and emotions between the artist and the recipient of artist’s works."
