Work of Marzena Gregier is close to painting. Thanks to innate intuition, the artist makes use of her surroundings and picks up urban motifs to compose rythms and patterns which strike us with intense colour.

Marzena’s domain is strong, southern sunlight which forms deep shadows and intensifies hues of photographed objects. In these paintings, framed by the camera lens, we may feel human presence – sometimes it is hinted as a shadow on a wall or by a silhouette walking along passages of subway; by an inscription on a mailbox or by products of human labour which are “portrayed” by Marzena Gregier. These photo-paintings may be created only by the artist who constantly revels in life, surprised by its multicoloured diversity.
