Alicja Ryś art


I am self taught artist, experimenting and using different techniques but mostly painting abstracts. Loving expressionism, modernism. 

I'm trying to find my own unique way of "expressing" my emotions in the art, this may why most of the subjects are often distorted or exaggerated. While painting each of the pictures I went through different journey. Sometimes was a wonderful feeling of spiritual awakeness, connecting with divine power and myself. Sometimes it was depressing experience for different reasons which I may discuss in the blog. Thank you for stopping by. Alicja.

Fabric printing refers to creating beautiful designs and patterns on textile surfaces. The beautiful swirls of patterns and designs on that pretty fabric you just bought from the fabric store - it all looks so seamless, effortless & easy. But fabric printing is anything but easy. It is very difficult to achieve precision and perfection and durable...

Textile Design

29/09/2021

Textile design is the process of planning and producing a fabric's appearance and structure. Textile designers dream up designs that are woven or knitted into cloth or printed on fabric. They might suggest types of thread to weave together for a specific look and feel or create patterns that adorn a fabric surface.

Bright, contrasting colours with varied tones compel cluttered, chaotic arrangement. The texture is uneven with some reflective brush marks. Impasto technique has been used, visible thick paint marks is layered which looks like irregular pattern. The brush movement is systematic quick with some splatters of the paint.

Colour is an amazing phenomenon. It surrounds us all the time and everywhere. In fact we rely on colour in lots of different situations. How do we know which way to take to lead us to ourselves? Because when we connect to colour, we connect to what we feel. And when we connect to what we feel, we can start...

Acrylics, 60cm x 60cm

I love ballet, not many people know that I was about to become a ballerina. When I was 9 years old, a big ballet school in Poland came to my town, to the school which I attended. They were checking all the students to see if they were capable to dance ballet by measunents and flexibility. All the succesfull student were invited to attend the ballet school. I was one of them, unfortunately at that point in time it wasn't possible for me to change school, as my mum was a single mother at that time and it was hard to orgnise everything. However I still love watching ballet and I'm very inspired by it.

When I was painting Ballerina, I was in good place and I hope you can feel it looking at the painting.

Light, flowing pastel strokes result in subtle and delicate tones despite the use of darker oranges and browns with gloss finish. The graceful ballerina mid-pose morphs with the background, her long hands could represent giving and/or receiving. The mood of this painting is relaxed, happy and graceful.

Low flower

Art for sale

Acrylics, 78cm x 62cm

'Strange but pretty painting' as my 5-year-old nephew described it! Clashing, depressing colours with some bright fragments and varied tones. The texture is rough and coarse in the upper right corner of the piece. The Low Flowers are in the lower area of the landscape-oriented canvas. The flowers are asymmetrical and give the impression of softness, where in fact they appear on the canvas as uneven and extruded. The background appears aged and damaged, with fancy, decorative flowers which are saturated and distorted. The mood of the painting is melancholic, but still bearing an element of hope.

Golden tree

Sold

Acrylics, 100cm x 80cm

 There is this one big, wonderful tree in London West Ham Park. It's old and huge and is my favourite tree. West Ham Park was a place where I spent most of my days during the quarantine time. This tree inspired me to paint 'Golden Plant'. I decided to work with a golden colour scheme for this is how I see the flora around us, especially this tree with its magnificent aura. It could be said that this is something which most people fail to notice nowadays because of the pace of life and its many complexities. Perhaps, after the pandemic, this will change and people will open their eyes to the natural wonders that surround us

I am happy with how this piece came out. It is an abstract landscape that poses many questions and hopefully makes you think about all the things that are left out of the picture. Bright, vivid colours with varied tones are used. Lively composition of an asymmetrical golden tree situated to the right of the canvas with a waterfall on the left. The composition creates positive space in a landscape format. Exhibits irregular marks made with a knife, pouring paint and impasto technique. Uneven, rough texture with some smooth elements to it. The shapes and movement of the colours and paint is overlapping and abstracted. Mood of the painting is joyful and has a decorative style.

Crying flowers

The composition is asymmetrical in portrait format. Barely visible light on the right-hand side of the canvas. There is sense of sadness as the flowers give the impression of tears.

Harmony

Art for sale

Acrylics, 180cm x 120cm

 'Harmony' represents peace and balance. I was inspired by the recent events race issues in America. The creatures represent humans, the red represents pain, blood, the bending hands and roots can be regarded as support or a struggle. A range of rich colours contrast with light pastels. Asymmetrical arrangement of the figures in portrait format. I used the impasto technique when overlapping elements of the piece. Some parts of the painting were made using a paint pouring technique while others were made with leaves, my hands and a brush. Like with other pieces, marks are also made with a knife. The mood of the painting is stimulating and thought provoking as the dark and light side contrast with each other and make us think. Overall shapes are abstracted, stylized, defined but blurred.
