water marzena bielecka

H2O

What comes to your mind first when you think about water?

This is a question I recently started to ask people. The variety of their answers surprised me. I already noticed certain patterns and a connection between their personality type and the answer. For example, when I asked surfers during my recent trip to Lanzarote, all of them told me ‘water is power’. Most of m closest friends perceive ‘water as life’. Some of the answers were very abstract like the ‘shades of blue’. I’ve asked separately some couples and often they shared the same image of what water is to them.

When I think about the water myself, I see the pure, nourishing liquid we put into our body through our mouth. I see it’s almost transparency spreading in our vessels and mixing with the fluids of our body.

Water (and lack of water) is my current biggest art project where I want to expand different images of that most precious liquid on earth.

Here are a few paintings from my H2O series, which are connected to my photographic series titled Wet Games, depicting the fun side of the water.

The painting was created spontaneously. I woke up after spending my birthday weekend out on the Baltic coast. I still heard the sound of the waves in my head and created this painting ultra fast (not even an hour) only from my memory.

CHEERFUL APOCALYPSE

Oil on canvas

120 x 90 cm

The painting was created after seeing a day vision of a swimming pool on a volcanic desert, which seemed to be a kind of hyperreality, where you can jump in case of your personal end of the world. There is always a world you can escape into.
