The launch of her poetry book “Exit” with poems read be Sorcha Cusack will be held at 6pm on the 19th October 2021, and includes “art in the Times of Covid”.
This exhibition is open to the public starting at 6pm on 19th October and closes at 9pm on 20th October.
Stylistically a romantic expressionist, Ewa Gargulinska uses dramatic interplay of the opposite forces of abstract and figurative in unpredictable yet powerful interactions, where the worlds between imagination and reality connect.
“I use metaphors and mythology to express emotional, spiritual and metaphysical states of mind, relating to my experiences of lifes mysteries. I draw images from both my imagination and collective symbolism, pondering how spirit animates matter and how it leaves the body.”
Ewa’s art is exhibited and represented internationally including: the National Museum in Krakow, the National Museum of Women in the Arts Archives in Washington, the Copernicus University Archives, Torun, and Madame Tussauds in London. Her work is collected worldwide, most notably by Dr. Arthur Sackler (founder of the new wing at the Royal Academy, London and the extensions to the Metropolitan and Smithsonian Museums in the U.S.A), Cusacks, Jeremy Irons, Sir Michael Scott and Vernon Ellis, Chairman of the English National Opera.
Gargulinska’s versatility is apparent through her wide-ranging career. She painted portraits in New York, designed theatre sets for the Gate Theatre in Dublin, posters for Madame Tussauds in London and has lectured at both St Martins College of Art in London and the School of Visual Arts in New York.
Ewa Garguliska holds Master of Arts Degree from Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts.
