Anna Szewczyk www.szewczykanna.comBorn in 1957. She studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts (SAFA) in Wrocław (Poland). She obtained her diploma as a painter in. Prof. Konrad Jarodzki studio and second diploma in painting in architecture in. Prof. Mieczysław Zdanowicz studio. Since 1982 she has been employed as university professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław (formerly: SAFA), in charge of the painting and drawing studio at the faculty of Painting and Sculpture. She is engaged in painting and drawing. She has participated in a number of groups and individual exhibitions: She is also a curator of many exhibitions and a founder of projects and the group “Silesium”.In 1999- 2016 she was a lecturer at the University in Wrocław, where she was leading the seminar “The Newest Art”.
Time in the works by Anna Szewczyk is a parameter frozen in the structures of culture but not in the form of cultural heritage, as it is most often perceived but in the elements of culture – in signs of changeable structure: in symbols, totems, trophies. The archetypal tear, the tragedy included in the essence of our existence is an impulse for the artist’s creativity and at the same time her catharsis. She gets cleansed through art and obtains knowledge about the world and herself. This very personal sensation which we can witness as viewers becomes our share, our catharsis as well. This form of intuitive cognition/perception of the reality is a great journey into the realms of time perceived as a parameter of culture. A journey into individual time, into the depths of oneself.
