Magdalena Cichon

In Cichon's art painterly forms of expression are representations of different ways of perceiving and interpreting reality. She combines varying degrees of abstraction, from random traces to sketch-like ornaments and manneristically formulated figuration, without any hierarchy or allowing for any clear positioning. The artist avoids one-dimensional interpretations, as these always remain inaccurate. Specific references woven throughout the works are meant to ignite a conversation without imposing a particular discourse. She often uses yarn and knitart, expanding the spectrum of painterly and adding another dimension to her paintings.
