About Magdalena Szmydtke

Inspired by the dazzling beauty of nature, Magdalena Szmydtke creates her art by incorporating light into the surface by reconstructing her memories of colours, patterns, reflections, and sparkles. She works slowly, building up every canvas with many layers of paint, beach sand, glitter, and liquid bronze. 

After studying molecular biology as well as international trade at the University of Gdańsk, she contributed to several multidisciplinary projects across the globe, including art consultancy for corporate projects in the Middle East, where she married her biggest passion for art and project management experience.

ABOUT THE ARTWORKS

Light. It builds us and everything around us. It falls from the universe, shapes our surroundings, and flows through our veins.

Presented artwork collection tells the never-ending tale of light passing through the day and night cycle. Those two opposing moments combine to form a whole and show all the dramatic spectacle of colours in a very silent way, linking us with what we are made of.
