Marysia Jaczynska

 ‘The themes of my sculptures are mainly based on human and animal shapes and emotions. They belong to the tradition of the narrative and figurative with a gradual transition towards abstraction of shape. I seek to express the essence, the inner depth of the subject matter using forms that are reduced to a minimum.

I search for harmony of proportion and equilibrium of forms, while aiming to convey emotions which retain   simplicity and flow of line.

I am constantly searching for different types of wood or stone with colours and textures that will best express the subject matter and bronze patinas with an organic feel.

I am fascinated by the works of Michelangelo, Rodin, Maillol, Brancusi and Marini, but do not feel directly influenced by any one artist.

I spent two years in France and ten years in North and East Africa and Italy. The cultures of these countries and their artistic riches proved a very stimulating and valuable experience.

I have exhibited in one man shows and mixed shows in England, France and Poland.  My work is in private collections in the UK, France, Poland, Switzerland and the US.
