Ewa Nemoudry

A characteristic contents of Ewa Nemoudry pictures are figural compositions passing at points into genre scenes, whose poetry is achieved by a specific brushwork which often simplifies pictorial components down to a sign, reminiscent of children’s cut-out sheets arranged into a composition. The expressive fragmentation of the pictures is the means of a freer positioning of figures in a symbolic space. Thus, the pictures acquire an imaginative power that is also enhanced by a surrealism-based arrangement of themes and permeation of time levels by composing parallel stories, fade-ins of memories into the current action on the first visual plane. The depicted kaleidoscope of light, “the collage of pictorial heroes and their stories” is dramatised, and also made lyrical, by the outstanding colour of her compositions. The essence of the paintings consists in colour tones and counterpoint accords of green, blue, yellow, and broken red. All of this, together with the paintings’ ability to trigger in the viewers’ mind the imaginative play of serial stories, probably forms the basis of the alluring magic emanating from the pictures.
