Elka Nowicka

nowickaI am inspired by antiques and classics, glamour and theatrics, and the close union of old and new. I rely on the symbolism and imagery to capture the intensity of emotions and reflections. Each subject is built up with layers upon layers of experiences and relationships. Multi textured technique intrigues me - it permits the control but allows the spontaneity in the creative process. The planned and random effects give each piece its unique beauty and individual patina.
