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.”
