Pictures from the day 1 - The Process
We are excited to start the first day of our residency with devamitra.com . The title of our endeavour is "Confluence". This exact word was chosen because it best describes the idea we are trying to achieve in the next few days. We are going to cooperate with each other and make our worlds clash in order to create a new artistic experience. We would like to come up with a series of paintings which shows the struggle of an individual in the modern world. We decided to use an astronaut as a symbol of alienation and pursuit of happiness and a place we can call home in the given circumstances. We would like to make the receivers of our art think about the sense of existence in the modern world and in the current environment. We hope to achieve a series of visual, conceptual metaphors through our intensive work with canvas and acrylic paint.
Today we started in the very morning by preparing the space in the RoofTop Art Studio where we are going to spend the next 8 days. We've also prepared the linen canvases 100x100 and 100x120 cm by putting the undercoat and pouring the first layers of colorful acrylic paint.
We invite you to come with us on this exciting journey!
Magdalena Mędzkiewcz and Arkadiusz Ruszczyk
