"At the Bottom of the Heart" 2015

Acrylic; Canvas; 120 x 80 cm
Author: Grazyna Ochowiak
Country: Poland

Don't say anything. Just be.

Grażyna Ochowiak says about "At the bottom of the heart": 'I love to read ... read fairy tales, myths, legends. I think they contain symbols, archetypes and many patterns of behavior, behavior, are an inexhaustible repository of knowledge, a diamond honed by many generations of people from the beginning of the earth, the pearl of collective unconsciousness.'

‘Alchemia’ 2016

Acrylic; Canvas; 80 x 120 cm
Author: Grazyna Ochowiak
Country: Poland

Look into your soul. What can you see?

"This work was created to expose the magical transformation of alchemy, prima matter in its female aspect: as the Earth, Venus, the moon, mother of all things, a vessel consisting of opposites having a thousand names like Mater Alchimia is wisdom and teaches wisdom; Elixir of life. In the potential, and the mother of the Savior and filial Macrocosm, is a land and a snake hidden in the ground, black and dew, and wonderful water, which unites everything that is divided.
Chaos is everywhere. It's a vessel of contradictions and many colors. The whole in the form of confuse mass, and yet a substance endowed with every quality in which the glow of the hidden deity can be revealed.
The divine hidden in prima matter was most often identified with goddess Isis: a healing goddess who not only cured Ra of poisoning, but also merged the dismembered body of Osiris.
The alchemical transformation was supposed to take place in prima materia, the initial material hidden underground, in which the solution already exists. Because etymologically alchemy means "dark earth", we can strongly feel the promise: alchemy and women are closely related. Woman ... Goddess ... is in the original heart of alchemy, at the beginning of opus. She is clean and untouched, waiting for her to be transformed by subsequent alchemical operations.
Deep inside me, there is prima materia ... colors, emotions, sounds, they call for release, transformation, my brushes are like the invisible fingers that tell this story."

"Blue Minds" 2016

Acrylic; Canvas; 70 x 120 cm
Author: Grazyna Ochowiak
Country: Poland

If you love someone, you are always joined with them-in joy, in absence, in solitude, in strife.

Grażyna Ochowiak says about "Blue Minds": ‘It was beautiful, hot July. I spent my vacation in an unusual house. At home "on the edge of time". Everything in there was magical. Wonderful forester's lodge "with soul". In the middle of the yard is an unusually symmetrical, fairy, old oak tree. The light was dancing in his branches ... shining in the leaves. Hammocks and swings in oak boughs, and in the fence, leading to the forest gate. Ears covered with the omnipresent singing of birds. Miraculous symbiosis of a human being with nature.

Blue Minds is about human relationships with nature. Yes about the relationship! Mutual interaction. The little bird speaks on behalf of the whole planet, every life on our heavenly Earth.

The blue bird tells the girl: "we are one"
Indivisible ...
It is beyond perception.
Beyond words and images.
This is something big.

They both feel that time is running! You have to stop the cruel treatment of animals, plants and waters. It's time to restore harmony ... to be able to talk about true deep relationships.

Blue thoughts - Blue planet.’

‘Facial’ 2017

Acrylic; Canvas; 30 x 40 cm
Author: Henny Perkins
Country: Germany

‘Showing an abstract face of a girl with big eyes.’

‘Blue Eyes’ 2012

Acryl; Paper; 20 x 25 cm
Author: Henny Perkins
Country: Germany

‘Showing a girl with face paint and messy hair.’

‘In the eye of the beholder’ 2015

Acrylic; Canvas; 30 x 40 cm
Author: Henny Perkins
Country: Germany

‘Showing an abstract eye surrounded by rainbow colors and a earthlike pupil.’

Henny Perkins says about ‘Facial, ‘Blue Eyes’and ‘In the eye of the beholder’: ‘They have the same meaning to me, abstractifying modern beauty and beauty standards. I wanted to show faces with peculiar proportions in a very colorful and maybe uncommon way. In most of my works I aim for an image that makes the viewer want to keep staring at shapes, colors and possibly unnatural angles.
I am widely inspired by artworks I see on according platforms, also artists I have encountered on www.studentartworks.org. Sometimes I get inspired by an amazing event that makes me want to play with colors and shapes.’

‘Healing’ 2017

Acrylic; Canvas; 30 x 40 cm
Author: Henny Perkins
Country: Germany

Showing an intimate moment shared by a couple.

Henny Perkins says about ‘Healing’: ‘It is inspired by a similar artwork I saw once. I wanted to do my own version of it using a smooth, flowing color structure that imitates the body shape of the couple expressing the intimacy and the "being-one" in that moment. One might notice that the color red is only present within the couple, representing the romance coming from inside the two bodies rather than being an outside influence. Inspiration for this work was, as mentioned before, a similar work I had seen online. The main message here is, I guess, the intimate moment shared between two people - where romance only matters between these two, ignoring any outside influence and where nothing else matters than these two and their closeness.’

‘Long long time ago’ 2016

Acrylic & Mixed Media; 50 x 70 cm
Author: Dagmara Rybak
Country: Poland

‘A magical and subtle portrait of a woman with floral elements and glossy glitter glittering in vintage design.’

Dagmara Rybak about ‘Long long time ago’: ‘Often the inspiration for me is the interior. The image can change the character of your home. The portfolio tempts with its glamor and luxurious beauty. The color palette of this portrait will be perfect in an elegant living room. Colorful paintings are a treat for those who enjoy modern painting. These images will make the interior of your home a modern light-weight appearance. A decorative add-on that will change the character of your home. These contemporary paintings have extraordinary decorative qualities due to color, form, technique and line.
I would like to encourage you to take a careful look at the images, because I am sure that it will reveal to you the extraordinary power of the imagination that will stop you and free you from the jarring and struggle of the day. The structure of the images is shining in some places, the images shine and shine in a multicolored way from different angles, also depending on the lighting, which creates a cosmic, magical atmosphere and the play of colors and light. The image reigns seem to be full of mystery but also harmony. Intriguing portraits in the portraits, timid delights on the lips, seriousness and lushness of the imagination define the beauty and mystery of the woman in these images.
The originality of this painting comes from glittering elements on the foreground which concealing their hidden meaning. The "hot" captures, the awareness of fleeing time and unique moments... all these give us the creative power to choose our favorite path. Our imagination is the place where everything is possible and no road has its end ... This painting combines elements of reality and fantasy.
Painting shows what fascinates us, what is gone, what is nostalgic. Climate, sounds, people, music, the queen of beauty. These portraits are like pink Cadillacs, which tempts amazingness and defiant, luxurious beauty. Stylized on Pin up- women full of sweets and charm, conscious of themselves and brave.’

‘Geometric Girl’ 2017

Acrylic & Mixed Media; 100 x 70 cm
Author: Dagmara Rybak
Country: Poland

‘The image is related to the theme and culture of pop art depicts a woman portrait in a geometric ponent connected contrasted with an ornamental background.’

Dagmara Rybak about ‘Geometric girl’: ‘The image was mainly presented in gray with accents colors. The relationship between geometry and space and femininity was presented here. On my paintings you can see clear emphasis on the relationship between the woman and the geometry. Intriguing look, timid delights on the lips, seriousness and lushness of imagination define the beauty and mystery of the woman in these images. The originality of this painting comes from ... glitter elements. Fragments of the painting are painted very ornamental and distorted by the geometric forms of women's clothing.
Painting has realism and fantasy elements. Is also static and dynamic through goemaking forms. Environment was mostly depicted in gray with colorful accents. Human relationship with geometry was presented here.
White skin makes this portrait catches the attention of the viewer and hypnotizes with the gaze. White on the image helps to purify and gain loyalty, and red lips symbolize love and affection. Geometric patterns in saturated colors make the creations more boldly youthful. This painting brings many inspirations, trends and ideas that can not be resisted. After the pastel colors in my art it comes the time for a completely different and even opposite direction. It's about expressive geometric shapes...
To emphasize their character, I added black to white colors. This work will introduce the magic of geometry to your interior. Geometry exists in interior design and art forever. It is all about universal character and the impression of elegance, attainable regardless of the color and style which are used.
While I'm using charm of geometry, I stick to one simple principle: everything in moderation.’

‘Women in 20th’ 2016

Acrylic & Mixed Media; 100 x 70 cm
Author: Dagmara Rybak
Country: Poland

‘Act of exclusive woman dressed only in fur while enjoying cigarillo.’

Dagmara Rybak about ‘Woman in 20th: ‘Act of nudity is one of the most important fields in the history of fine arts. It is considered the basis of artistic and fine arts education. For ages it was one of the favorite themes that aroused the imagination of the creators. Only in the nineteenth century the feminine act got rid of mythological costume, and the goddesses and nymphs abandoned their sophisticated attributes, transforming into modern women with blood and bones. Nowadays feminine act is one of the most frequently taken motifs in art.

This work shows a naked woman in a scanty underwear. Along the body she 'hugs' beautiful black fur which symbolize wealth and elegance. This woman wears small trinkets like for example diamond-shaped cuff. This seductive woman holds a cigarillos that would symbolize female sensuality and sexuality. The whole work is painted in very contrasting colors.

The colors used in the image are black, white, gray, and pink. The background refers to the sensual lace of the feminine attribute. The strong and clean fur color contrasts with the delicacy of feminine pink on the lips and hair.’

‘Lady Blue’ 2017

Acrylic & Mixed Media; 100 x 70 cm
Author: Dagmara Rybak
Country: Poland

‘Static portrait of a woman with eyes full of mysteriousness.’

Dagmara Rybak about ‘Lady Blue’: ‘The painting shows a beautiful woman with turquoise hair, huge piercing green eyes and seductive lips. This lady is facing us. Her look is hypnotizing. It's right to say that a woman is a nice and tender secret, kind of enigma, that everyone loves but no one truly knows. She has nicely tied hair, her makeup is very discreet, almost invisible and light. Her black shirt is decorated with delicate flowers of strong red, white and green color. The background is light and full of lace.

As Victor Hugo used to say -
“You look at the star for two reasons because it is bright because it is impenetrable.

You have a nicer beam of light and an even bigger secret - a woman."'

‘Green Eyed Lady’ 2017

Acrylic & Mixed Media; 100 x 70 cm
Author: Dagmara Rybak
Country: Poland

‘Portrait of a mysterious pink-haired woman dressed in an airy tunic with floral elements.

Dagmara Rybak about ‘Green eye Lady’: ‘We live in the world where the spiritual and mystical worlds and the world of religious experiences have pushed the human sensitivity to the margin. We are witnessing the triumph of broadly understood science with scientific progress. On the other hand we are wondering or rather we are surprised of the fact that so many of us search for humanity in the fields of magic, esotericism, divination. Moreover, we observe the revelation of the "sacred groves" in Estonia or Latvia, Druids, elves and "Mother Earth" in France, the world of fairies and magicians.
Hidden deep in the woods lies secret, wonderful land where the spirits of nature have a free hand. In these places the presence of elves is almost palpable, and the air vibrates from its vitality. This painting refers to the existence of magic, forest fairies and elves. Most often elves have green eyes that’s why I named this work ‘Green eye lady’. In the Scandinavian folklore, which inspired me, it was the beauty of the girls who lived in the forests of the elf king. They were long-lived and laid back by nature. They could be seen dancing at night in the meadows. The circles left by them were called älvdanser (elf dancing) or älvringar (elf circles). The man observing dance of elves noticed that even though it seemed to him that hours had passed, the real world had passed years. I hope this painting will hypnotize you with its beauty and mysteriousness.’

‘Sleeping Beauty’ 2016

Author: Diana Dragoman

‘Sleeping beauty is an abstract painting which blends easily with reality, which is shown by a nude woman laying on black, cold earth and behind her a city during war.’

Diana Dragoman about ‘Sleeping Beauty’: ‘Sleeping beauty is an abstract painting which blends easily with reality, which is shown by a nude woman laying on black, cold earth and behind her a city during war. The contrast between her clean skin, bright, the dark background, the dark gray buildings and the smoke produced by war somehow bring peace in the midst of chaos.’

‘From the buttom of the heart’ 2015

Acrylic on cardboard; 68 x 43 cm
Author: Krystsina Lukyanchyk
Country: Belarus

‘The state of soul of a person who for the sake of others ready to sacrifice and give everything.’

Krystsina Lukyanchyk about ‘From the buttom of the heart’: ‘I made this picture when I’ve met my future husband. Our relationship has become a huge inspiration for me. For the first time I wanted to do so much: give all my love and jump over my strength for him. Also, when I was creating this painting, I was greatly influenced by the stories of my friends about their relationship and the search for love. Not having received tenderness from the family side in childhood, having felt the irresponsibility of their feelings in adolescence, they were looking for a person who could have given the accumulated tenderness and who could share it and return the same in return.

I had to observe how they destroy themselves because of the insane feeling of dependence on another person, because of the desire to show their instincts. Burning, they hid the feelings in the corner and at the first opportunity, with the first sympathy for a certain person, they were ready to give all their heart and soul. The relationship and the need for love were so great that, no matter what, they involved themselves more and more into the abyss of love, tenderness, caring and passion. Each time, entering into a new relationship, they saw the future and wanted to drown in it. They told me how hard it was for them in their relationship, but at the same time they continued to give themselves to others and at the same time blossomed and become inspired.

Losing the connection with their second halfs, they lost hope for the existence of love, but then, meeting someone, gave love even stronger. Many of my friends were tormented by confronting people who were not ready to accept their feelings, but that did not stop them from loving and giving their hearts "on their plate" for other people. The irresponsibility of the feelings was even more a motivation to care for and to surround the love of their chosen ones.

For me, they turned into a kind of "martyrs of love." Therefore, this picture is dedicated to my dear friends and all those who are full of love, as well as those who have not learned to share the love they received in double measure.’

‘SHH’ 2016

Ink; Paper; 30 x 21 cm
Author: Marya Camenzuli
Country: Malta

Marya Camenzuli about ‘SHH’: ‘This fine tip marker piece came about from my passion of drawing lips. It started out as me trying out a new technique and unintentionally I ended up with an art piece which had a meaning beyond what is seen at face value. This piece shows the concept of silencing and how to this day women are still being silenced in some form or other around the world. They say silence is golden, but remaining in silence means powerlessness, conformity, lack of self-respect and above all hopelessness. By making voices heard, we re-establish our societal values and empower women.’

‘Nero’ 2017

Ink; Paper; 30 x 21 cm
Author: Marya Camenzuli
Country: Malta

Marya Camenzuli about ‘Nero’: ‘With this water colour art piece I intended to instill some form of emotion in the viewer. The woman's gaze depicts an occurrence where words fail and emotions trickle down her cheek. I used only black water colour purposely so as to give it a more somber feel and hence it is called 'Nero' which means black in Italian. Even though it shows a tearful woman, I see hope in her eyes as she gazes out into an unknown which she still has yet to discover.‘

‘The Composer’ 2012

Acrylic on canvas; 80 x 60 cm
Author: Ed Schaap
Country: Netherlands

‘This work originated by my fascination of certain (classical) music.
I find it incredible that these people at that time, could make music and write down.

A dogma is a doctrine that is considered to be indisputable by your faith or religion.
Only your faith is the faith of the only true God, the rest is superstition.
War, murder and killing, in the name of ...
And then say that your God did made the world, that means also the other people you kill.
You are killing the work of God, his creation, how hypocritical is that.’
