Marlena Czajkowska is a visual artist and graphic designer. She lives and works in Masuria, Poland.
In her painting, the artist relies on memories without revealing specific observations. They are rather glimmers, like green that mixes with the blue colour in a sea wave hitting the waterfront, dark streaks on a facade of a tenement house on an cloudy day, or purple which appeared in the sky during evening bicycle trips.
Czajkowska graduated in Visual Arts at the University of Warmia and Mazury(2014) and Painting at the University of Arts in Poznan(2016).
My painting is an attempt to capture a certain transience. Stopping drifting shapes that have scattered somewhere between mental images. It happens that memories are to some extent a dummy or an illusion, in which fascinating adventures intertwine with a sense of security.
Colorful ranges of thoughts circulate in disorder to return in moments of loneliness. They evoke specific feelings in which pain is intertwined with euphoria. There is a longing for something known, so that after a while you can experience the impression that everything is passing forever.
Captured shreds of thoughts arrange themselves in pictures full of ambiguities, where the rhythmic shapes of familiar spaces are accompanied by a wide band of gaps that they are unable to fill.
