Artist statment:

“For me, nature has the character of an idol to adore through a feminist perspective, in which the creative power is primal, incomprehensible and lies beyond civilization. I always turn more towards abstraction, because I have the impression that it shows the state of creation and disintegration at the same time. It gives me the necessary freedom. I find ideas in the process of painting. Basically, the theme is the paint itself. Density and fatness are combined with thoughtful technology, intertwining traditional oil painting and modern utensils with own ideas of their application.” – Edyta Hul

Edyta’s multilayered paintings are personal and intimate recordings of her current passions and emotions. Driven by a need of technological search, Edyta keeps exploring possibilities using different painting techniques. Her curiosity and boldness leads to ever changing, dynamic paintings.⁣⁣

Edyta places great emphasis on pushing boundaries and taking risks while searching for new expressions in her paintings. Her method relies heavily on dexterity, playing with different forms, shapes and paint. Painting with many layers allows her to obtain a desired depth, heaviness and density in her work.

Edyta’s focus is on the process rather than a certain outcome. She often displays more material interest and emphasises on the differences between fragments of one image or the preservation of one small effect, rather than the final consonance of the whole. This creates a specific impression of chaos and dynamic in her work.  

Edyta combines memories and ideas to determine a narrative in her work. Far from being literal, she creates mysterious and veiled stories. She sees her process like a journey through an unknown, perhaps somewhat hypothetical or fairy-tale world, where seemingly ordinary objects acquire new amazing forms and proportions:

 “I like to put different tensions and emotions into organic shapes. Numerous quotes from the world of plants, organs and creatures that I read and understand easily, I  try to translate into semi-abstract forms. Sometimes, I refer to the content of human cultural heritage, mystical symbolism, mythology and psychology.” – Edyta Hul
