Agnieszka Nienartowicz’s oil paintings lead us into a universe that points back to and re-actualizes the great master painters through art history by reproducing selected parts of their art works in a new context. Nienartowicz’s hyper-realistic oil paintings exude sensuality and mystery in a tranquil and intimate setting and her depiction of tattooed women provides a glimpse into a hidden world full of unsolved riddles and secret thoughts.
Nienartowicz’s individual exhibition Longing for Another World is a very personal and significant exhibition. It shows Nienartowicz’s formidable ability to grow as an artist and not to dwell on the successes of the past, but to develop and explore hitherto unknown areas within her artistic practice.
Among Nienartowicz’s ten new oil paintings for the exhibition, one will be able to recognize her characteristic motifs of women with tattoos on their bodies. In Nienartowicz’s earlier works, the women often appear with their backs to the viewer, but in Longing for Another World, faces have been turned head-on towards the viewer. A single grip that effectively changes the expression of the works significantly. Who are these women and what are their stories?
Some of Nenartowicz’s most recent works for the exhibition feature neither women nor tattoos. Here she shows a complete new and brave direction to her practice. Despite the different choice of motif the paintings maintain Nienartowicz’s characteristic moods, qualities, intensity, references to the past and techniques that brings goose bumps and wonderment to the viewer.
