In the body labyrinth IV

“In the Body Labyrinth IV” by Magdalena Nowatkowska is a work composed of a series of simple yet elegant lines that create a space resembling a labyrinth. The artist uses a subtle color palette, dominated by warm shades of pink and beige, which imparts a gentle, calm tone to the piece. The contours depict window-like forms that may symbolize various aspects of the human body, seen as if through a prism or fog. The entire composition can be interpreted as an attempt to find oneself within the complexities of one’s own emotions, thoughts, and physicality.


Elements reminiscent of bodies are embedded within the structure resembling a labyrinth, suggesting the difficulty in understanding or accepting oneself. The lines set boundaries, yet are subtle enough to indicate their permeability and fluidity, adding a layer of meaning about the impermanence and variability of human nature. Although simple in form, this painting encourages deeper reflection on the human condition, interweaving themes of the body, boundaries, and the labyrinth of the human psyche.
