Izabella Gustowska (1948 – Current)
Studied at the Poznan Academy of Fine Arts under Tadeusz Jackowski (1972).
Gustowska represented Poland at the Biennale in Sao Paulo (1987).
One of the Poland’s pre-eminent video artists. Her work evokes personal experiences, individual emotions, resulting from reflection on the ambiguous nature of time. I first encountered her work at the National Museum in Wrocław which exhibited many of her works within the context of the gallery space, not particularly that of Gustowska’s installations. Here, her work appeared to me as lucid, dreamlike, three dimensional soft paintings; almost like melancholic, figurative relief quilts.

Her work also has a lot of You Tube presence.
