The paintings of Anna Matykiewicz are an expression of the dialogue, which takes place between the object she paints and herself. Her portraits express different feelings – happiness, sadness, anger and they are about acceptance of all human emotions and finding a balanced and positive outlook on life. They mostly symbolise the transformation and mix of emotions within herself and so they are very personal in that way.
Over time, her paintings, especially the later ones, have become lighter in form and colours but have also stayed bold and courageous in their overall style. From time to time, she returns to the darker and more intense tones. As with colours and style, the titles of her artworks correspond closely to the emotion she would like to portray to the viewer.
Her work is strongly influenced by things which inspire her in her everyday life – nature, beauty, fashion and interior design. Her work is a journey which enables her to connect with her inner self.
