ABOUT PATRYCJA’S ART:

In the cycle of solo exhibitions, Patrycja Mastej: „has collided the soft smoothness of forms
with firm fleshiness of their fabric. Eager eyes follow the organic quasi-shapes she has created,
and which are always escaping the “hunting” eye. The metamorphic images she has created
in vegetableanimal human shapes are like blooming fossils – they are coral reefs immersed
in the depths of a swinging body.”

PATRYCJA MASTEJ / short biography

Visual artist, designer, academic teacher in The Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design
in Wroclaw. Scholarship holder of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic
of Poland and co-winner of the WARTO Cultural Award 2009 by Gazeta Wyborcza for the project
„Interactive playground” produced by WRO Art Center. She collaborates with the Wroclaw
Contemporary Museum – since 2012 she has been designing interactive educational exhibitions
from the „Self-Service Museum” series. In 2018 she obtained the PhD of Arts title at this topic.

Parallel in her individual art exhibitions she focuses on the topics that explore processes related
to body memory and awareness, often using the creative method of Butoh dancers. Her painting
and drawing are records of sensual meditation in motion. While creating, the artist opens up to
the subtleties of full feeling, contemplates and visualizes experiences flowing from the body
and emotions that escape definition.
