MARACHOWSKA ART & SIBERIAN BLUES
ART & MUSIC

MARIA MARACHOWSKA 

21.07.1980 (Monday) born in Omsk/ Siberia (Russia). Spent her early childhood in Estergom/ Hungary and in 1986 she moved with her family to the historic metropolis Kaliningrad/Königsberg, where she attended the E.T.A. Hoffmann music school for highly gifted children/ instrument: piano/1989-1993. In 1998, she returned to her native city Omsk/ Siberia for a period of 2 years to complete her studies of fine arts. Since 2000 she has   been living in Germany, since 2004 in Berlin, where she has also newly discovered music for herself in addition to her work as a fine artist and has created her personal, innovative music style of SIBERIAN BLUES

For Maria Marachowska painting represents an act of liberation, when she immerses into the element of art, the empty canvas or a sheet of paper means infinity to her. In her artistic expression, she knows no boundaries, the painter’s brush in her hand seems to take on a life of its own, becomes the key to an intensely personal, mysterious world. When she paints, she draws from the strength of her rich memories and her experience of life, quite remarkable for an artist as young as herself and capable of touching us just through their truthfulness and authenticity. In her works, her experiences are transformed into pure energy and emotions which are transmitted to the spectator, it is impossible to withdraw from the deep attraction of her images, they virtually absorb through their oscillating, often almost hallucinatory colours and their suggestive shapes. It is her artistic credo not to adjust whatsoever to anything that has existed, she cannot be assigned to any existing art style, her works speak of universal forces, far beyond any conventions.

Inspiration comes from within herself, from her innermost feelings, her joys and pains which she transfers into her visionary image compositions, as if to relieve of an oppressive burden – creation is a basic need to her, inseparably linked with her life. The process of her artistic work is only comparable to a natural phenomenon: the wave effect and extension, caused by a pebble that touches the water surface and spins apparently infinite circles, one arises from the other, a constant development and renovation, generating always new, innovative art works and image series. Maria Marachowska’s art is cosmic, seems to be connected to the stars, abstraction opens new dimensions of perception, something sacred and sublime is inherent to her oeuvre, radiates a healing power. The apocalyptic air, penetrating to the surface in many of her paintings, gives no reason to anguish or grief, but announces a new world in which the Fantastic has defeated cold rationality, through the awakening of an all-embracing cosmos, she gives reason to hope, her images give us a hint of a lost world before the beginning of time, to which there is no more access in normal life.
 
Having discovered the special art of glass painting for herself through a commissioned work for one of her collectors in 2011, Maria Marachowska has made this technique her own and developed it to perfection. The way she transfers her unique painting style from paper and canvas to transparency blasts the boundaries of traditional material properties, conveying the impression of alchemic power. A medium more commonly associated with ecclesial context or art-deco inspired design, glass painting has been transformed into a totally new art form in Maria Marachowska's recent works. Whereas in Tiffany objects, metal is used as separating element, she generates the same effect through the delicate application of relief paste, an enticing allusion to the assumed characteristics of stained glass art. © Text: Iris Weirich
