I’m a self-taught artist and have been drawing and painting for four decades. I’m interested in the process that creates a painting. Although it involves imagination, this process is affected by chance, so that when I begin a picture I have only a half-formed image of what the finished painting might look like. The completed piece only slightly resembles the image that I had in mind when I began it. I think of this as improvisation. Over the years that I’ve been painting, I’ve learned to trust the brush and the materials – to let them take the lead – and not to think too much about how it will end up . . . until I get to that end.

This is part of what makes painting interesting for me.

Featured Artist | Magdalena Wozniak Melissourgaki

Mandalena combines the classical with modernity, as she takes a timeless subject or topic and presents a modern rendition of it. She redefines and recreates a traditional idea, by imparting expression through brush strokes. She loves doing portraits and pays special attention to get a true likeness of the eyes as she firmly believes that our “eyes are the windows to our souls”. Her opinion is that the skillful use of the art isn’t only the attempt of reflection the reality but first of all, the most accurate devise of emotion.
