The fascination with color

Briefly, it is a theory describing the dependence resulting from the compilation of each color, which always contain a certain emotional charge, and they are relative, you can read them in many ways. It is crucial to combine them so that one color to "light" or fade in the background of another, or simply change your tone.

Each painting, depicting a seemingly simple topic: meadow with a huge flower in the foreground, nothing taken out of "Alice in Wonderland 'mountain landscape, the trees could provide a perfect illustration for the story of Amos Oz's" Suddenly, in the depths of the forest "; turbulent abstractions, warm tone, are kinds of "small worlds", which is difficult to clarify the mystery, provoke deeper zastanowień, are a kind of challenge to the recipient.

I look so I feel

Grójecka she rejects the inspiration of other artists. Yes, they are among the artists who fascinated Anna Daria, but more as a personality, the characters suffer from hypersensitivity of the soul. These include Vincent Van Gogh and Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz. Particularly close to the artist's concept of "pure form" pricked by Witkacy, which holds that art should not be locked in any frame; artist for his work trying to "touch the metaphysics of human existence." For painters are important emotions that evoke images. Regarded as less This material, as shown in the canvas, and more intrigued by the way of creating feelings through the use of such interesting light and shadow and color relationships.

Not just apple

Grójec Earth boasts a number of artists, unfortunately, are often aware of their existence, only a handful of people linked by their common interest, and yet their activities are also a vital part of the overall achievements included in the same region. Anna Daria Merska took the trouble to systematize the knowledge of local artists, dedicating a master's thesis Fri "Some artists connected with the earth Grójec." The young artist believes that the promotion places and people associated with his "little homeland" constituted self-awareness. It is important to not only stress the importance of past history, but also an interest in it to date.

Especially appreciated the work of local regionalists, such as Kazimierz Kochanski, Remigiusz Matyjas, Andrew Role-Stężycki, Zdzislaw Szeląg, as due to various documents Grojec they retain their uniqueness. Well, this predilection to draw from reality, the beauty of the surrounding beauty affects the harmony of the images of Anna Daria Merskiej. It is true that often the most extraordinary creations of the imagination, lose out to the surrounding nature and the exquisite simplicity.
