About The Artwork

This is the first painting I did upon moving back to Chicago from New York. It represents overcoming obstacles and succeeding in the journey at hand. The Name DAEDALUS comes from the story of a father and son who are trapped in a tower and surrounded by water. Over time the father and soncollected enough wax and bird feathers to make wings for themselves in order to escape. The father warned the son that if he flies too high then the sun will melt the wax and he will fall into the water and drown, but if he flies too low than the water's big waves will smash into the boy and he will once again drown. So the father, Daedalus, flies out first and makes it to freedom. When the boy, Icarus, departs with his self-made wings he flies to high to the sun and his wings fell apart and he fell into the water. It was a crazy transition fro NY to Chicago, but I felt very empowered because I made it safe home. I hope this painting also gives the audience the power to overcome obstacles in their lives, and keep their glass half full. To the underdogs! Enjoy!

BEATA CHRZANOWSKA's works encompass what a tender dance between color and form would look like. Highly realistic yet minimal, her painted figures naturally coexist among sharp spontaneous geometry. She paints to create an intense, desirable, and euphoric mood. The femme, her primary subject, dominates and inspires her work. The body becomes a series of shapes that come together as an intricate puzzle that requires an audience to put in place. The work deconstructs the beautiful and recomposes it with a new armor that resonates an indestructible landscape. Beata Chrzanowska, (b. 1987) Polish born artist, grew up in Chicago. She received her education studying the human form from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in Wisconsin. Her work has been shown at Select Fair (Miami, FL) with Brooklyn based BACG, Cheryl Hazan (New York, NY), Sensei Gallery (New York, NY), Arthelix (Brooklyn, NY), Foundry Art Centre (St. Charles, MO), Jackson Junge Gallery (Chicago, IL), and Var Gallery (MIlwaukee, WI), among other spaces. She has also been featured in HiFructose Magazine, Nakid Magazine, Wild Magazine, UNDR RPBLC, and Posture Magazine. She currently resides in Chicago.
