The first of this year's line-up of solo shows at Old Town Swindon's Oink Gallery is the ever popular Anna Matykiewicz.
Following on from her previous sell out 2019 show with the gallery, the Oink team are really excited to showcase Anna's 2023 collection of mesmerising paintings and portraits. You can catch the grand premiere on Friday 17th February at 7 pm.
Anna Matykiewicz is a Polish artist who has been living and working in Ireland since 2003. She has become well known for her striking portraits that gaze intensely at the viewer. Using bold colour palettes for her figurative artwork, Anna also incorporates elements of abstraction in the form of dripping paint and gold leaf details.
She says, "My paintings are an expression of the dialogue, which takes place between the object I paint and myself. For this reason, I chose to paint portraits, which allow me to express this dialogue and the emotions I am feeling."
" From time to time, I return to the darker and more intense tones. As with colours and style, the titles of my artworks correspond closely to the emotion I would like to portray to the viewer. My work is strongly influenced by things which inspire me in my everyday life – nature, beauty, fashion and interior design."
The preview starts at 7pm with the bar provided by Oink's Old Town friends from The Eternal Optimist bar.
Don't miss this opportunity to be the first to see this amazing collection, to meet Anna at the premiere and enjoy live DJ sets from local DJs.
