Bozena Burzym Artist Bio:

Bożena Burzym-Chawińska was born In Krakow In 1954 and studied painting at te State Higher School of Art and Design in Poznan from 1975 to 1980 graduating with an M.A from the studios of Professor Tadeusz Brzozowski and Jacek Waltos. She lives in Kraków and is actively engaged in painting and drawing.Her work is essentially concerned with human figure, not simply as a genere of traditional theme for the artist, but as the symbol of her fascination with the process of internal transformation and self-creation.While the gender and number of figures in her work changes from painting to paintiong she considers that, '...the crowd being drawn is essentially a result of the transformation that a single person undergoes ... frozen within the frame of a picture, in various stages of his or her journey.' (N otes, 1994) The resulting works have the nature of theatre about them, the figure and its variants become the participants in a drama that is essentially interior and private, even though its manifestation in her paintings becomes public. In her paintings becomes public. In this there is a sense of the paradox of human identity, an awareness of a relationship between the though social interaction. Burzym-Chawińska is an observer, not only of the changes within harself but also, actely so, of those that she perceives on others. The quality of pure line, evident in her drawings, is also very apparent in her painting, and this, combined with her fluent use of paint and carefully balanced color, gives her work an individual and reconcilable signature. She frequently uses multiple images, some fully resolved, others transient, indicating an awareness of the nature of movement which comes form her earlier involvement with dance, The results are frequently lyrical but aspect is always offset by a harder edge and a questioning of the roles her figures play. Burzym-Chawinska's ideas often result in a series of paintings which gives the opportunity to observe the process of transformation. In Morning/Noon/Evening (1992), for example, te sense of drama is heighted by her bold use of color: in the first painting a nude female figure loosely drawn in reds stands against an area of bold viridian across which falls the shadow of a slender tree; in the second a semiclad couple, male and female sit back to back on a red clot to either side of the tree against a blue distance which could perhaps be sea; in the third the couple walk across a wide russet area could perhaps be sea; in the third the couple walk across a wide russet area with a deepeningvirdian background and the shadow of the tree falls acros theit path. The story remains a mystery, the identy of these paintings identifying with the images that are presented. Presence - Absence II (1994) is a deeply reflective pair of paintings which deal, literally and metaphorically, with the tension that come from togetherness and separation, and the spaces between people that come from both physical and psychological distances. With a palette restricted to blues and yellows and a confident delicacy of line Burzym-Chawinska has established a powerful statement of a universal thruth within relationship. The clarity of her vision, coupled with her mastery of the medium, marks her as an artist whose sensibilities are well-suited to expressing that are coming about not only in her country but also in the wider theatre of the human condition. from "Contemporary Painting in Poland" by Richard Noice, Craftman House G+B Arts International
