Artist Ewa Pronczuk-Kuziak Defines Happiness in New Solo Show

The Editors

 

Downtown Los Angeles’s Corey Helford Gallery is currently exhibiting a solo show with Polish contemporary artist Ewa Prończuk-Kuziak, entitled Happiness is Easy.

 

 Prończuk-Kuziak’s oil paintings are a combination of still life, nature, and fantasy. The artist creates colored visions of animals that are made of materials, as if woven out of thread and decorative fabrics. Building on contrast, they are full of life, energy, and fantasy, always idealized in their complicated nature and continuous transformation. In her art, the artist uses intensely saturated colors, which illustrate the vibrancy of the world her characters inhabit.

 

Happiness is Easy is a continuation of Prończuk-Kuziak’s True Colors show and is composed of 17 new oil paintings depicting short stories and reality snapshots which all have one thing in common:  happiness.

 

According to Prończuk-Kuziak, “With time, I saw that True Colors was all about hope: hope for luck and inner peace …. The newest series of my works describe happiness and finding it in perverse ways. Happiness is a very subjective concept and on the individual level, is often extremely difficult to reach despite being the most important and crucial need for all mankind. People can try to reach it for all their lives and find it in the most unexpected or strange places, situations, people, or moments.

 

Ewa Prończuk-Kuziak is a Polish contemporary artist who lives and works in Warsaw. She studied Polish Philology at the Warsaw University, Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp, Belgium) and Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts (Warsaw, Poland) where she obtained an MFA in Painting. Ewa’s oil paintings are a combination of still life, nature and fantasy. Building on contrast, her artworks are full of life, energy, and fantasy, always idealized in their complicated nature and continuous transformation. In her works, Ewa uses intensely saturated colors, which illustrate the vibrancy of the world her characters inhabit.

 

Happiness is Easy premiered on April 18th, alongside a group show, entitled Fantastical Beasts, and a solo show from Yoko d'Holbachie, entitled Flowers.
