About Grazyna Tarkowska

Born in Poland, lives in France, grand niece of the famous filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky.
The fundamental interest in my work is Man and Nature. The portraits of concrete people, those who witness, allow me to grasp the individuality.
Faces, on the other hand, are the personification of a general idea, universal.
In the sculptures, both small in resin and large in concrete, it is always the Human Body, inhabited by the Spirit that interests me. I am looking for colors, shapes and lights. She participates in exhibitions in Europe, America and Asia.

Education

Grazyna Tarkowska studied between 1980 and 1987 at the University of Nicolas Copernicus in Torun in Poland. In 1987, she obtains the diplomas of Artist Painter and Master in Fine Arts in the same university.
Since then, she has expressed herself through painting, sculpture, drawing and poetry.
