my art blog: http://miriamvintage.blogspot.com My standard artistic education was finished above a decade ago, when I graduated secondary school of arts in Katowice. Despite this fact, i consider myself as half-autodidact, creating in my very own Hermit`s cave. My own,feverish searches in the art area are last since 2009, being at the beginning peculiar form of autotherapy, which has evoluated with time in the primary and non-replaceable occupation. If i had to looking for independent sources in my art, which significantly influenced on the language i am using in my works, i would, without hesitation, to list two concepts: Witkacy`s theory of pure form and the state of horror metaphysicus described by Leszek Kolakowski. The most important is to invoke in self this one and this only metaphysical sense and awaken it in viewers

En parallèle de mon activité dans le BTP, je développe une pratique plasticienne de la photographie. Natif de paris XXe, mes influences sont toute naturellement puisées dans mon environnement. C’est cette ville monde qui m’éclaire sur une réalité toute particulière où l’apparence et la réalité ce côtoient et s’opposent.
Mind Refined Currently my art practice is focusing on extending the idea of fate, chance and spontaneity and how it can be used to create artwork when combined with certain ideas of Arte Povera. Fate can be viewed in many different ways. For example, Carl Jung described fate as “When an inner situation is not made conscious it happens outside as fate” or another point of view could be the development of events outside a person's control, regarded as determined by a supernatural power. These concepts of fate are some of the multiple ways in which fate can be described. When producing art work the idea of fate was the key driving force behind my art. I also looked at Carl Jung’s idea of the Collective unconscious and produced a piece that represents this in my exhibition. The collective unconscious is a Jungian psychological theory in which some collective aspects of consciousness such as community history may be imprinted in the individual unconscious mind. The unconscious mind that is shared by all human beings and that contains archetypal images passed down from our prehistoric ancestors. I also used religion to inspire my work because of its strong association with fate. I have used these ideas as creative boundaries to explore this interest I have and to find out how far I can push my understanding of fate, chance and spontaneity. In a way it is also an exploration of the self as well as the environment that surrounds me. Instinct also plays a part, although as of yet I am unable to say to what extent. This belief in spontaneity as an important approach to art (which I believe is focused more on the unconscious, as there is very little room for the conscious to affect the work), this plays to my strengths and helps to free my mind of restrictions other than the ones I have mentioned. Viola Spolin who was known for her improvisational theatre described spontaneity in this way "Through spontaneity we are re-formed into ourselves. It creates an explosion that for the moment frees us from handed-down frames of reference, memory choked with old facts and information and undigested theories and techniques of other people's findings. Spontaneity is the moment of personal freedom when we are faced with reality, and see it, explore it and act accordingly. In this reality the bits and pieces of ourselves function as an organic whole. It is the time of discovery, of experiencing, of creative expression." I take inspiration from artists such as Van Gogh, Jaan Toomik, Henri Matisse and Marchel Duchamp as well as psychologists such as Carl Jung whom I believe have or had a similar approach to primitive or instinctive subjects. For example Carl Jung said “From the living fountain of instinct flows everything that is creative; hence the unconscious is not merely conditioned by history, but is the very source of the creative impulse. It is like Nature herself.. prodigiously conservative, and yet transcending her own historical conditions in her acts of creation”. I have also an interest in the origins of art. For example cave paintings which are the earliest evidence of art. The oldest known paintings are located in the Northern Territory of Australia and are approximately as old as 40,000 years old. The reason for my interests in ancient rock art links in with my interest in shaman art, and that prehistoric cave painting may have triggered the greatest change in human history which is why I believe art is such a powerful tool and very important to our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. I’m interested in shaman art because it is believed that the origin of known art is “shamanism” – “The shaman was to serve as interpreter and intermediary between man and the powers behind the veil of nature”. The shaman provided the link for his people between worlds, the physical and the extraordinary nonmaterial. The latter is the world of the spirit. Shamans believe that this is where the human soul resides. I share a similar view in that I believe art opens the world of the subconscious. Shamanism is as old as fully modern man himself; almost everywhere evidence of one is found, there is evidence for the other. The word shaman derives from the Tungus word meaning “he who knows” It is widely believed that language is derived from art and that art was the first language. The origin of the desire to make art is also to question how instinct works in contemporary expressions. I am concerned to make new connections between expression and persona, or character. There is a particular point in time when I can say instinct first showed itself as a real technique with its own strengths. It was back in the first semester when I collaborated to produce a stop-motion on a rock which we found outside university which by chance we happened to use after neither of us had brought an object to work with. Having never worked in the medium of stop motion prior to this as well as putting the piece together using final cut pro, it was very much about using my instincts to produce this work. At the time I saw it as a problem but the saying beginners luck may have more to it than people give it credit. During my first year of university much of my work was working in medium I had not used before. This forced me to approach my artwork in an experimental way. Perhaps this interest I have in coincidence is a stepping stone or a learning curb. I believe everyone’s lives have a degree of luck in them that is incalculable to even the brightest minds or most advanced computers. I feel that by exploring the concept of fate I can explore a wide range of topics almost simultaneously together with learning new medium under the guise of fate, should the end result prove inadequate. If the storm settles or the obsession fades or my mind is crushed by the complexities of everything, I will have a range of pointers to pick and choose from in my practice later in life. There is a particular piece that stands out from first year and is the strongest piece I made that supports the ideas I’ve been exploring. It was a piece I made merely for the breakfast club. The origins of this piece derive from a song I first penned before I started university called physicality’s. I was thinking about the song in a lecture and started sketching images that reflected the lyrics of the song. Then one day after university when I was walking to my flat by chance I happened to notice a few pieces of chipboard cut into squares I decided to pick up one of the square pieces of chip board that was lying there on the pavement. Later realising I needed to make something for the breakfast club I used the image from the lecture and started to reproduce it on the chipboard with oil pastels. Then when I took it to university I used a marker pen that I found to highlight the details. I developed this concept in second year and named it ‘An u know’ which ties in with the Tungus meaning of shamanism ‘he who knows’. The original depiction of this character shows someone wiping away Anne’s tear but the image that developed from that represents the taping of the nose when someone knows something that you don’t, hence ‘An u know’.
Née le jour de la Saint Amour, un 9 Août à Cannes, j'ai passé chaque instant disponible de mes années là-bas à la mer, une de mes grandes passions. Mon travail est inspiré par une valeur élémentaire recherchée par beaucoup d'entre nous - la liberté et notre obsession pour l'atteindre. Pour être accessible, au moins dans la société occidentale, il faut de l'argent. Pour avoir de l'argent, nous avons besoin de travailler et de nous" conformiser" pour parvenir à nous intégrer. A force de s'intégrer, nous y perdons les couleurs qui nous différentie. Tout nous devient indispensable, et c'est la course à la belle voiture, à la montre qui brille... Du temps, toujours plus de temps, au travail, dans les transports, en dehors de chez soi et de son "soi" et "soit" intérieur... En tentant de devenir on s' emprisonne ... avec pour barreaux les codes sociaux et comme prison notre vie. Un jour on vieillit et on se rend compte nous avons été un pion dans un "jeu de société", une carte bancaire, un numéro... Pour moi, la liberté vit à l'extérieur de la machine, où elle n'est plus visible et ne peut pas être atteinte, polluée. Oui, cela ressemble à un idéal, et une personne m'a dit que les gens comme moi qui en ont un de réussissent pas leur vie. Et bien moi, je dit que cette personne se trompe, qu'elle a tout faux même, si cela n'existait pas, il n'y aurait jamais eu de Woody Allen,de Beatles de Bob Marley,ni de Coco Chanel ou de NTM ! Imaginez- vous un monde où il n'y aurait que des médecins, des avocats et des politiques! Savoir fermer un livre et en ouvrir un autre, afin de faire de sa vie un ouvrage riche et merveilleux. Rien ne peut plus me choquer, et plus et rien de ce qui s' est brisé dans ma vie ne pourra être réparé.C'est ce que l'on nomme le définitif (comme le tatouage, d'ailleurs)... Créer son nouvel ordre du désordre avec les éléments de son passé et de son présent, en espérant que le futur trouve tout les sens des mots force et harmonie. C'est ce qui fait mon besoin de m'exprimer, au travers de la peinture et de la photo. Tellement concentrée, et pourtant si béate, si généreux et volontaire, pourtant si fragile, aussi détaillée que floue - une contradiction marche ... Après avoir voyagé aussi loin que possible, mon est de rêve maintenant de visiter la Jamaïque, où je pourrais respirer, vivre et manger "musique". Toutes mes œuvres sont donc inspirées de tout cela, comme un mélange, une sauce! Je vous propose d'y goûter...
Self-taught in watercolor, I am a curious about the nature for a long time. The look of an animal, the pressing gesture of an insect, the reflection of a leaf are enough to inspire me. I try to get it " Something furthermore, who cannot understand, who is essential "
