Paulina Michnowska employs a range of media that includes film, painting, ceramics and collage work. Her primary interest lies in the process itself, where she can physically explore different materials and their singular characteristics. Using an assortment of collected imagery from books, photographs, newspaper cuttings and ancient sculptural artefacts, she selects, edits, and melds the materials into a language of her own. There is an anarchic, rebellious visual energy that surges violently between grotesque and the delicate. Her recent works are perhaps a reaction against the beginnings of her artistic training at Plastyk Academy (Poland), where in the town of Kielce she worked three days a week for five years, painstakingly copying old master paintings in meticulous detail.
