Marta Cichecka, Piotr Machnowski, Joanna Musil, Ewa Skrzypczak studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw at the same facultie (Interior Design) and at the same time. They are the generation that have acquired (and still gets) the “general” and artistic awareness "a few years after the turn" (1989). At the time already multipolar, not a black-and-white, or better said red-and-white.
More choices, earlier responsibility for themselves. This and not any another reality determines their attitudes, shapes their personality. They react differently to this reality, they place their attention and tension in different "spaces" and that significantly distinguishes them, making them separate. At the moment - in their time energy to action is important. It seems (judging by the paintings) that they made the selection. Now it is the time for development, through in-depth self-criticism.
