Jankowski Iwona

I am an artist living and working in my home studio in Magnolia, Texas.

My “Mottled Horses” – Equine/Western art developed since 2002-3 in my new “Mottled” style that merges abstract and expressionism with a touch of realism. The subject is created on a colorful abstract background to express feelings, often shown as a close-up, with special attention to the eyes and focusing on specific moods. Often with secondary transparent image/s to show movement or specific scenario.

In my paintings, I don’t intend to replicate photo-realistic objects, but to capture the utmost uniqueness of life. Illustrating my subjects, I often pay no attention to exact shapes, textures, or real colors and emphasize just on a small fragment, sometimes a very tiny detail, in order to insinuate an idea. That approach leads me to concentrate on what I feel and not what I see or know about the subject. Also, it helps me to effectively use visuals to depict a story about my subject.  My art captures just an indication of a subject to leave the rest for my viewer’s imagination to create the unique picture.
