Iwona Jankowski – Artist’s Statement
My “Mottled Art” – Equine art developed since 2002 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 and composition. 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.
Signature Artist for 2016 with "Western Dust" by the AQHA Museum entrance.
