The new series of paintings in acrylics represents more than a mere change of medium for Mrozicka. By following the energy of her subjects — the people, places, and nature she experiences—the artist allows herself to become the medium, transferring and capturing their energy in her work. This transference requires her to both “tune in” and “let go.” The result is a magical image that captures the spirit and emotion of her subjects and invites the viewer to participate in the very essence of her process, from inspiration to transformation.
The work in her current series, Sunday Mornings with Matisse,draws particular inspiration from old masters such as Matisse, Van Gogh, and O’Keefe. On a recent trip to her native Poland, Teresa rediscovered the work of Polish painter Nikifor, whose life story deeply inspired her to follow her heart.
