Bestiarium Renata Pawlik-Kiebdój

The word beast arouses dread and anxiety. Renata Pawlik-Kiebdój's Bestiary neither disgusts nor haunts, rather it arouses curiosity...

In Renata Pawlik-Kiebdój's compositions there is a predatory sensuality and beauty. The artist introduces us to the world of her imagination and her imagination of woman. Pawlik-Kiebdój carefully observes women, attentively watches them. With a little bit of mischief and sarcasm she creates female forms: ordinary, licentious, proud, sensitive women... She recreates their gestures and behaviour, and writes her personal and extremely original bestiary of women.
