About the Artist
Growing up on Nantucket Island, where the air tastes of salt, and beach plum, Magdalena Pawlowski migrated to the Quiet Corner of Connecticut, enveloping herself in a haven of yellow birch and hemlock trees. She received her BFA from the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Conn., and studied at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, D.C. Recently awarded residencies include the Hale Residency on Nantucket, Mass. and Zaratan AIR in Lisbon, Portugal. Along with receiving the Wardlaw Grant from the Lyme Academy, and the Wood/Raith Living Trust Fellowship, she has participated in numerous regional exhibitions.
“The heavy midnight blue wraps around me as I peak through a brightly lit window. Inside sheers lacerate strands of braided hair, and matchsticks dance around a table. Creating visual hybrids of personal memories and folklore, I paint moments of loneliness, loss, and discovery. Playfully and intuitively piecing together scenes like a puzzle. I work primarily from memory, saved snapshots, and my well-worn diary. Egg tempera’s ability to create delicate line allows me to painstakingly replicate minute details such as hairs on a spider leg, embroidery threads, scales on a fish, and, coarse lace on a communion dress in an attempt to reinterpret the stories of my childhood.”
