Exploring Old Szczecin – exhibition by Izabela Ewa Staśkiewicz

In her series of paintings focusing on the themes of Szczecin, the artist delves into the past. Roaming the old streets of the city, she reveals corners and structures that have not survived to our times. How delightful it is to brush against history and ignite the imagination, absorbing that world with all senses. To hear with one’s eyes the bustle of the Oder river boulevards, marketplaces, and streets. Although the details are not always clear, many fragments convey a sense of distance through the mist, yet the atmosphere of the city, its image from years ago, remains highly evocative for her. She enjoys portraying motifs from our city decades ago on her canvases. It’s incredibly moving and inspiring at the same time.

The series comprises 20 new paintings, created using the impasto technique, oil on canvas. A stroll through the old metropolitan Szczecin will surely be an incredibly interesting experience!

Izabela Ewa Staśkiewicz is a graduate of architecture from the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, having received her diploma in the early 1990s under the supervision of associate professor Romuald Cerebież-Tarabicki. For over thirty years, she has been perfecting her painting technique, preferring the “impasto” oil technique.

Her works mainly focus on architectural landscapes and depicting her hometown across many epochs – from the 17th century to the present day. During numerous artistic journeys, she creates thematic cycles, capturing the colorful exoticism of different places and people. Boldly using color and texture, she creates vivid atmospheres.

She also experiments with unconventional color compositions. By simplifying color and form, abstractions are created, woven into realistic threads, giving her paintings a deeper emotional dimension. The shape and expression of her works depend on her state of mind at the moment of creation.

Since 2015, she has been a member of the West Pomeranian Association of Cultural Creators (ZSTK), and for the past three years, she has been part of the “Artemisia” Art Group. Her works have been presented at numerous solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including prestigious venues such as the Vatican, the Presidential Palace in Poland, and the Mayor’s Palace in Paris.

The exhibition is available during the opening hours of the café. Admission is free!
