Ewa Juszkiewicz

 

Ewa Juszkiewicz, born in 1984, lives and works in Warsaw and Krakow, Poland. She obtained a Master of Fine Arts Degree in Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk, Poland. She works in the fields of painting, drawing, installation and animation. Her major area of interest is the image of women. She analyzes the canons of picturing women in the history of art, as well as their cultural and social implications. She works mostly in the field of portrait, creating hybrid characters by means of appropriation and remixing of historical artworks. Using deconstruction and referencing, she establishes a dialogue with the painting tradition on the grounds of which she builds new contexts, narrations and formal solutions.

In 2013 she was awarded the Grand Prix of the 41th Polish Painting Biennial “Bielska Jesień”. Her works are in the collections of  Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw and Bielska Gallery BWA, Poland.
