Artwork description

‘Aleksandra in Ectasy’ is a painting is from Weronika’s The Goddess’ body series. Sexuality and emotionality are two themes that the artist identifies as vital to her. This painting of a detail of an ethereal female face haloed in a haze of glowing yellow light and softly defined features appears in the throes of female pleasure, as evidenced by the title. Weronika likens her paintings to real women stating how, for her, “paintings can not only be pictures; they can scream like you, cry and have orgasms".

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.
