Basia Banda at Monopol Gallery
Fernweh is the title of the exhibition, the interpretation of Basia Banda desire to be somewhere you have never been before.
Basia Banda journey can be understood more broadly than just a change in the location on the globe. The artist continues to use abstract imagery, she adds further elements to her painting vocabulary.
Zielona Góra has always served as Basia Banda starting point. It is here that the artist consistently builds her worlds, and it is from here that she embarks on further expeditions. As a seasoned traveller, she has a curiosity about the world and a recurring need for change. During her journey, she has already traversed lands of pink, streams of yarn, thickets of scribbles, vulgarities and diary entries, in addition to areas inhabited by bloodthirsty hybrids of various animal species.
Such a landscape results from looking within herself, while contemplating the surrounding nature. If there is another stop on Basia Banda’s path, she will be driven there by the pursuit of the unknown, the constant engine of her actions.
