Bialystok (Poland), 1981
Marta Mezynska is the chronicler of the metropolis. Her houses – always caught front on – offer us facades with syncopated rhythms, where the architectures engage intriguing formal and chromatic counterpoints in a constant game of abstract references. Truer than truth and yet impossible in their too perfect harmonies, Mezynska’s buildings immerse us in suggestive metaphysical atmospheres. While watching her artworks, we delude ourselves, perhaps recognizing a city, grasping a sense, an explanation, but the image remains in some ways elusive and, for this reason, even more seductive. It is as if the artist’s brush had created another reality in which the houses breathe their own personal breath, they exist, think and feel emotions regardless of us.
Marta Mezynska was born in Bialystok (Poland) in 1981. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw and attended courses in mosaic and painting at the Carrara Academy, thanks to the Erasmus program. Her works, always characterized by the constant presence of architectural drawings, are a tribute to her father, an architect who died prematurely. Her works are present in many private collections in Italy and abroad. In 2019 she entered a group exhibition at the Hotel Galleria Vik in Milan, a project aimed at enhancing the hotel exceptional architecture with hand-painted murals and frescoes. She lives and works in Milan.
