Agnieszka Brzeżańska (born 1972) – painter, photographer and video-maker associated with Marlborough Gallery in London and Vera Munro Gallery in Hamburg.
Brzeżańska paints abstract, but peculiarly symbolic canvases. In her works, shapes inspired by microscope images entwine with astronomic maps, often in an esoteric or mythological context.
She received an award under the prestigious DAAD program (The Berliner Künstlerprogramm – Artists in Berlin Program), which made her join the ranks of its former scholars – Wojciech Fangor, Roman Opałka, Zbigniew Herbert, Stanisław Lem and Krzysztof Penderecki. Her CV consists of a great number of group and solo exhibitions at the most important institutions worldwide. Bob Nickas, the legendary New York-based curator and art critic, devoted the whole individual chapter of his “Painting Abstraction: New Elements In Abstract Painting” – considered the bible of abstract art – to her work.
In Poland, Brzeżańska’s paintings were presented, among others, in the solo exhibition “Motherland” at the Contemporary Museum in Wrocław and during individual shows at the Aleksander Bruno Gallery in Warsaw.
