Mixed media painting on canvas by Izabela Olszyna from her Mantra series.


The id, together with ego and super-ego are the three components of the human psychic. According to Sigmund Freud the id is the most instinctual, 'the true psychic reality'. It represents inner feelings and has no knowledge of the outside world.


Majority of Olszyna's paintings are devoted to abstract forms. She is inspired by nature, space and phenomena, which are not an obvious art subject. The scale is both macro and micro, or sometimes hard to define and label. She experiments a lot with texture, which in some cases takes the form of a relief. While painting, she tries not to conceptualize and rather use the language of color, form and texture, because once the painting is completed, it will become subject to the subjective sphere or interpretation. The way her art can
be interpreted is dependent on the relationship between the features of a given painting and the cognitive capabilities of the viewer. There is no wrong interpretation, only the end result of interacting factors.
