Ewa Dawid – CONVERSIONS – expressionist abstractions
CONVERSIONS – expressionist abstractions
CONVERSIONS are expressionist abstractions. Ewa Dawid paints without planning, making impulsive rather than controlled decisions. This allows her to achieve a balance – to create on the border of consciousness and subconsciousness. Ewa Dawid’ paintings represent a complete departure from figurative painting. In her works, we see a free assimilation of various graphic elements or a complete deformation of known forms.
We have the feeling of changing, modifying values and moving towards some new theme. The artist freely develops the initial theme, then changes and deforms it. Change is the essence of Ewa’s painting. However, it is not about changing the form. According to her, change takes place primarily on an immaterial, psychological level. Her expressionist abstractions are detachment from the sense of reality as we generally perceive it. They create a unique and private world of the artist.
Her paintings, expressionist abstractions, are characterized by a combination of spontaneity and elements of exceptional care for form. The artist paints with great control – it is a very important part of her creative process. She often uses unexpected painting solutions. Her works often show unusual artistic solutions. For Ewa Dawid, creativity is about processing and expanding. This means that the final work is the result of a process, not the result of a planned scheme.
Each painting in the style of expressionist abstraction is an inspiration for further works. A new look at previous works provides her with new motivation and gives a new painting a new dimension. This is Ewa Dawid’s private way of looking for inspiration. It is a way of constant development and the energy of her creativity.
CONVERSION series of paintings
Images from Ewa Dawid’s CONVERSIONS series are associated with change. The artist presents an abstract subject and freely manipulates it in an open formula. In her expressionist abstractions, she breaks with the sense of reality as we generally perceive it. She does not look for known, obvious forms. Ewa often experiments to get to know what is new, to discover what is still unknown.
Liquid acrylic paint is her favorite medium. It allows very impulsive painting because it dries very quickly. This feature of acrylic paint perfectly reflects the painter’s temperament. Ewa is impulsive, she doesn’t wait too long between adding new elements to the canvas. She applies multiple layers of paint, adding and never removing elements. Thanks to this, she achieves extremely spontaneous effects. Viewed closely, her paintings surprise with their complexity and multitude of details. Even a small fragment of her painting deserves to be a separate work, another unique expressionist abstraction.
