Erotica and intimacy on the borderline with physiology – there is no taboo in Agnieszka Sandomierz’s works. “When I paint I deal with my own carnality, I want to have a look at myself – she says – however, looking at the painting is not the same as looking in the mirror. A painting is a synthesis”. In Sandomierz’s art there is the pop-art partiality to brands and gadgets, to the ‘commonness’ of gestures and scenes. A decorative character of her works is quite often emphasized by the ornament and flat swathes of colour bringing up from the background the silhouettes of women, men and animals.
