Marzena Krzemińska-Baluch

I insightfully look at places, the surrounding reality, and in my mind I draw vignettes from nature, snapshots from history, to reflect the mood, ambience and shapes of sceneries memorized. I use glass as the dermis to find the process of the emergence of form. I experiment and observe the behavior of glass during its shaping. Involving air and the gravity process, objects arise to reveal the subtleties of memorized places and events, in their details encouraging reflection and musings.
