ANNA MARCZAK-GUT
Born in 1990 in Gdańsk, PL
Lives and works in Warsaw, PL
/
Visual artist. Finished studies in 2016 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw with the Saxon Project duoshow exhibition at Prof. Andrzej Węcławski 6s graphic arts studio collaborated with Agnieszka Wasilewska. Also with an annex individual show at Prof. Ryszard Ługowski drawing studio. Thanks to a Warsaw city art scholarship, the diploma project was developed and rebranded in 2017 to Saski nie śpij! public space event, website, and publication. Before Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw she studied also at the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław and Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń at Fine Arts Department.

She currently focuses on painting, but working also in fields of drawing, graphic arts, murals, video, making objects, site-specific art installations, art in public spaces, exhibitions, and graphic design.
Since 2016, she has been running her Sky/Heaven* „series” which actually includes every piece of her work.
/
Exhibited in Poland and around the world, including: National Museum of Art (La Paz, Bolivia); New Tretyakov Gallery (Moscow, RU); Rochester Contemporary Art (Rochester, NY); Center Gods House Tower (Southampton, ENG); BWA Tarnów Gallery (Tarnów, PL); Jan Tarasin Gallery (Kalisz, PL); Labirynt Gallery (Lublin, PL); Salon Akademii Gallery (Warsaw, PL); The Arsenal Municipal Gallery (Poznań, PL); The Wozownia Art Gallery (Toruń, PL); Printing and Writing Museum (Grębocin, PL); etc.

___________________________________________
*I regularly touch on the sky/heaven theme in my art practice. Sometimes the sky area plays the main role in the composition of my work, and sometimes contrary – it seems to be just a part of the greater wholeness. There are also times when I dedicate an individual canvas/frame to it, separating the sky from other picture elements. In Polish, we have a one-word – „niebo”, describing two meanings of it – physical and metaphysical, and this is exactly what I am interested in. I find it inspiring visually but also meaningful at the same time.
