Contemplative Silhouettes Search for Their Path in Life


Artist Kasia Derwinska creates scenes with contemplative silhouettes trying to find their own paths in life. Each anonymous character is either standing at a distance or walking off in a vast and empty landscape. There are recurring visuals throughout her portfolio that include umbrellas, clouds, and a theme of pensiveness as her characters are stuck at a standstill. Like an artistic metaphor for life through a surreal lens, each frame presents characters with endless options to create their own reality.

Choosing not to refer to herself as a professional photographer, Derwinska says, “I use photography as a tool, like a brush for painting or an instrument to play music.” She further explains, “My creations are an attempt to connect the visible with the invisible – feelings, emotions, fears, hopes and doubts about the world we live in. It is my personal journey through this unreal reality.”
