Ewelina Koszykowska was born in Poland. She is a graduate of the Columbus College of Art and Design. Ewelina exhibits her work in galleries and museums across the United States and abroad.
In 2012, Koszykowska began work on a series of paintings which explore the relationship between the nude and the veil. Drifting like smoke across the canvas, the veil possesses a metamorphic quality affecting all it comes into contact with. As it obscures and reveals the figures, it draws our focus to the translucent and invites us to make our own conclusions on the immateriality of the material.
Koszykowska’s work creates a visual séance, opening up a dialogue with traditional depictions of the veil as a decorative object and responding to its religious connotations throughout the history of art.
