Within the Frame of the body

“Within the Frame of the body” depicts a geometricized, figurative abstraction, a simplified form of the human body. The bodies create frames against an energetic orange background. It is a narrative about the energy of corporeality.


The artist provisionally refers to the abstracted nudes with clearly framed body parts as body paintings in this series.


Through the use of simple forms and a limited color palette, Nowatkowska prompts reflection on what is essential in our experience of corporeality and how our own perceptions define what we see.
