Pola Dwurnik

 
 

Pola Dwurnik (Poland, 1979) works mainly with oil painting, various drawing media, collage and Mail Art.. In painting the artist tries to rediscover a new strength of expression in the confines of a figural representation, in which she examines identity caught in the conflict between the inner emotional and the external image.Her works are in collections of National Museum in Gdansk, Museum of Contemporary Art MOCAK in Kraków, Contemporary Museum Wroclaw in Wroclaw, Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw and in private collections in Poland, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, France, Slovakia, Czech Republic, USA, Mexico, Japan and Australia.
