Katarzyna Maria Magdalena in her works focuses on portraying people, mainly those who, due to various reasons, by choice or lack thereof, have found themselves on the outside of society. For Katarzyna Maria Magdalena a human portrait is not merely a likeness of the face but rather an image encompassing all details of a persons everyday life: their personal belongings, home interiors, window views, holidays etc. All these aspects provide a starting point and inspiration for her abstract, vibrant and emotional paintings.
Currently, Katarzyna Maria Magdalena is working on a project entitled Die Vergessen. In a series of oil paintings she aims to retell the complicated history of the previous century from the perspective of average Germans. The project intends to be a fresh voice in the Polish-German dialogue, shifting the focus in the complex relations between the countries.
The multidimensional approach she has developed in numerous countries she has lived in is likely to allow Katarzyna Maria Magdalena to create a modern image of society that surpasses cultures.
