Anna Hryniewicz – Above the Horizon
Anna Hryniewicz is an abstract painter working primarily in acrylics. She draws her inspiration from both music, which is an integral part of her life and from nature with its majestic landscapes and seascapes. Hryniewicz’s work focuses on the power of colour and the interaction of shapes and lines. She transforms materials into a strong artistic expression, which seem to emanate with colour creating intriguing compositions. Each painting represents the thought, the feeling, the sense of place rather than the traditional look of the world.
In her work she refers to her childhood memories, the passage of time and how it forms her sense of being. She creates a window into colourful realms that are around us and in us but they also lie beyond our worldly affairs. Her work is a vision of imaginary worlds, undiscovered planets, unknown places in the Universe. For Anna a painting is a mystery which she explores and brings closer to us. Looking at her compositions reminds us of our own childhood, it requires relying on intuition and going beyond our ordinary perceptions.
Anna graduated from Częstochowa University (Poland) in Painting and Teaching Art in 2004. She is a professional member of VAI and her works are in public and private collections in Europe, the UK and the USA. She was the recipient of Incubate Residency Award in Draiocht in 2019.
