Katarzyna Cudnik


Light and colour are her starting elements in an abstract landscape painting. The colour spaces are created sensitively and full of energy. In this way, the artist enters into an intensive dialogue with nature. Katarzyna Cudnik was born in Gdynia, Poland, in 1971 and initially studied art in Gdansk, Poland. She then moved to the Düsseldorf Art Academy to study under Prof Graubner and Prof Anzinger. She became a master student of Anzinger. As a student of Graubner, she explores the reinterpretation of landscape through light and colour, creating her own pictorial reality as a kind of timelessness and universe. She herself says, “My artistic endeavour is to spread out the colour on a surface and to place this surface in space”. Her view of the future is contemplative and timeless; she has found the subject in which she has achieved exceptional mastery of her craft, the handling of colour.
