Artwork description

‘To Goddess’ is a painting from Weronika’s Be Afraid series. Thick multicoulored swathes of paint twist and turn in this image, creatinga sort of vortex shape where the colours become lighter towards the center, almost as if a light were shining from the very core. Resembling a flower, with connotations of female genitalia represented in such a peaceful and beautiful manner, the imagery alludes to the beauty of the female form without the objectification and traditional viewpoint of the male gaze.

Weronika Michalska

Weronika Michalska works in a number of mediums, from painting and drawing to creating installations and short films. She has exhibited at a number of prolific spots all over the world, including Armory Artweeks in New York, or Willa Bergera in Sopot. Weronika is also a member of the Boiginie art collective, whose artists' themes center around ideas of love, equality, sisterhood, and tolerance. In her own work, she highlights topics that are most important to her, such as identity, sexuality, belonging, and emotionality. The concept of women being able to express freely on topics such as sexuality and create noise that fights against oppression and the silencing of women is a key notion in her works.
