Dominika Kaczmarczyk graduated from the Cracow University of Technology in 2009 and, despite her successful professional career as an architect and interior designer, she describes herself as “an architect by profession, artist by accident.” This creative background has harmonised perfectly with her development as an abstract artist, as she knows how to work with space, light and composition. She also understands the positive impact that art brings to a room. Dominika’s visual growth as an abstract painter is rapidly flourishing and expanding and, as one can see from her varied and stimulating body of work, she is continuously experimenting with different styles, media and colour palettes. She is keen to keep exploring her capabilities without adhering too rigidly to a distinctive personal “style” this early on in her career.
She also vehemently concurs with the famous statement by
Pierre-Auguste Renoir: “To my mind, a picture should be something pleasant, cheerful, and pretty, yes pretty! There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them.” This is a bold view to take in contemporary society where conceptual art reigns supreme and traditionally aesthetically-pleasing work can often be dismissed as unworthy. With her art, Dominika seeks to bring joy and soul to a space, as well as pleasure to the owners of her paintings: a concept not to be dismissed lightly. It is not that the paintings lack any deeper meaning, simply that the meaning is treated more universally. The artist allows the viewer, through their own personal interaction with the colours, textures and forms, to create their own story behind the image and make a profound and individual bond with it.
Dominika's career is rocketing, having gained recognition through successful solo exhibitions in Cracow and more recently making her mark in London.
