Polish artist, Ada Dobrzelecka’s oil paintings are haunting amalgamations of our inner and outer selves. The portraits are eerily lit and cut uncomfortably close, as we’re confronted with what is “beautiful and scary – the true interior of a human.” And as such, it is difficult to point out where the human flesh ends and the underlying anatomy begins.
Ada says of her work,
Throughout my paintings I would like to create a possibility to find real and simple meanings, presenting a human as a part, full of natural predispositions to be an integral ensemble. I am inspired by the inside of the body containing various forms. Complicated chaotic systems like tangled veins, nerves, skeletal structure and mechanism of muscles… In that way of perception, the interior of a human body is almost a fractal. It is a reflection of the outside world.
I compose my images contrarily putting that what belongs inside on the outside of the unblemished skin surface. Anatomical systems on unique physiognomics of the portraying people, lose their symmetry. In confrontation with shapes of the body they become deformed. Visible objects appear illogical, getting new meanings, new color and shape. Presenting a human as a kind of a constancy, I try to give an excuse to reflect on the ephemeral and the non-stop changing world.
