A colourful print made using the photomontage technique depicts a flying rhinoceros. It is carried by an airship – a powered aircraft. Interestingly, on a beam that is part of the carriage supporting the animal, an owl can be seen travelling together with the rhinoceros. This unusual and surprising sight is part of a fantastic world created by the artist, whose speciality is the juxtaposition of seemingly incompatible factors into one completely new element. This new quality often has an unexpected, sometimes hilarious and even astonishing effect.
The artist works mainly in black and white, but here she has opted for colours. The rhinoceros, which is in the central part of the work, attracts all the attention. However, it is possible to see many interesting hidden touches, such as the goggles the animal has on its eyes.
Polish digital photographer. She is self-taught and has been creating for over 10 years. Her work is divided between photomontage and traditional digital or silver photography. She works primarily in black and white, although her colour photographs are also published.
With the unusual, sometimes even whimsical juxtapositions evident in her montages, she transfers viewers to fantastic, mysterious worlds. Her surreal images are also reflections on the world we live in. The works in which she can give vent to her imagination show – as if in a distorting mirror – a slightly different, curved reality full of remarkable flying elephants, but also beautiful flora. Her passion is photographing and immortalising trees, to which she pays a lot of attention in her work. However, she also takes pictures of landscapes, nature views and architecture.
About her work she says: “Photography is a part of my life that I really respect. It makes my imaginative visions free and makes a silent dialogue between me and viewers. It’s a crutch and fullness in my adult age. It’s a way of watching the world that surrounds me.”
