About

   

My name is Joanna Wróblewska and I live in a charming city of Potsdam, Germany. 

Being in motion, traveling the world to enjoy the beauty of diverse landscapes and cultures is for me a great adventure. My international experiences made me not only a profound observer of common creative processes but also a highly qualified art educator invariably seeking for new challenges. I always do my best to keep both my clients and students fully present and highly motivated, because I strongly believe that creativity should be constantly acknowledged and empowered. During consults, classes, and workshops I like to share with people my enthusiasm, passion, and confidence that anyone can express through art.

In my own creative practice, I use both photography and various mixed-media techniques to create unique images. I cherish the gentle beauty of nature surrounding me here and now. Fragility and vulnerability of life touch me deeply. I am moved by the variability and unsteadiness of being.

My affection for design and, through design, for practical solutions have a formative influence on my creations. I am especially interested in botany, nature morte and various kinds of everyday life objects. In 2015, I got absolutely fascinated with ceramic art and now it became an important part of my art repertoire.

My creation. Your treasure.
My artworks are made with love and care, to become a part of your collection or simply bring joy and beauty into your home and workspace. Original photography prints, unique ceramic pieces, and mixed-media illustrations are my gifts to the world and to you. If you would like to purchase any of my works, please read the FAQ and/or enquire through Contact.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Don’t Touch My Yellow*, 2018 (mixed media on paper, ca. 100x150cm)

The nature of things
slows down blood in their veins.
They reach true zen
and become simply silent.

No matter how hard they try
their hearts stop and freeze
in a clash of creaky contrasts.
Vibrant lines flow around them
and in them, there’s a promise.

That modest life of forms
is too complex to capture,
so they make me both fussy and curious.
Every day I intend to break into
their stiff bodies and become a witness.

The nature of things
touches me intensely
in all the most mysterious ways.
I progress.

They make me see.
They are my lesson.
They make my art happen.
They are me.

 
CURIOSITY. ENTHUSIASM. EXPLORATION.

In the creative process, I appreciate the value of making art slowly, step by step and then observing it unfold. My impatient nature keeps bothering my senses, but I do my best to stay present and connect with my art here and now. I genuinely enjoy and experience art as a process that leads to the unknown. Every time I develop a piece, I find myself progressing towards something new and completely unexpected. Each creative activity and art project changes me; every artistic discovery makes me even more curious. I am imperfect, often I fail, sometimes I make progress. It goes on and on, and I find authentic pleasure in this endless process.

My inspirations give me strength and invite me to explore the hidden nature of everyday life objects. The colour touches me, the same as the formal beauty of things, and the pure language of composition. I photograph, write, shape clay, and I paint. Sometimes I even play music. And most importantly, I keep myself open for what art brings into my life.

Art is my meditation, my biggest struggle, and my greatest passion. I live art.

From my creative heart to yours,
