Blue - eyed

“Blue-Eyed” by Magdalena Nowatkowska from the series “Limits” is an abstract piece that with its subtle color palette and simple, geometric forms prompts reflection on the concept of personal identity and the mystery of the human gaze.

The composition focuses on a structure resembling a shape interpreted as an abstract representation of the human figure. Where an oval, scaled proportionally to the body, element in the intense blue color, with a black center, symbolizes an eye.

The blue color of the eye is associated with depth and clarity, and it may also symbolize clear vision or deep understanding.

The title “Blue-Eyed” suggests a human trait or personal characteristic that speaks to uniqueness and individuality. In the context of the “Limits” series, the painting may explore the boundaries of identity that we define through our unique physical or metaphorical features.

The composition, like most of the artist's works, is simplified, emphasizing the purity of lines and
clarity of form. The use of space and color in the piece is deliberate, aiming to focus attention on a single element, allowing the viewer a moment to contemplate its meaning and role within the broader context.

“Blue-Eyed” is a metaphor for the way we perceive others and ourselves, as well as for the boundaries we establish around our personal experiences and perception of the world.
