Twitching, trembling, flickering. Searching of the gap confirming the existence of multiple realities in a single space-time. An exploration of the existence of an actual material physical being in which metaphysical elements can be reflected.
Covered in a veil of oneirism, Izabella Gustowska's art seeks to reveal that which is in-between, that which is elusive to the human eye. In the place where reality is blurred and the human soul and body are polarised, the materiality that limits it is revealed. This unmasking was made possible by the artist's use of the medium of photography, on which she applied paint or retouched by hand. Nevertheless, for Gustowska, the exposure of man's complex nature was merely a pretext for penetrating the wider connections that make up society as a whole. The intermingling of the different perspectives and emotional states of the individual with what the masses feel provided a broader picture of the human condition in the contemporary world, as well as Gustowska's individual reception of art (art steeped in biographical themes) in the masculinised world of artistry.
