Kate Piekutowski



A romantic, in a modern context, has numerous meanings. One could associate this term with love, fiction, idealism and even a desire for adventure. However I do not want these misconceptions to be associated with my work. Although one may perceive ideals of beauty, this portfolio represents rather melancholia towards Polish culture and history.

Influenced by the Romantic era of the mid-nineteenth century, these images explore the juxtaposition between lightness and darkness from both a metaphorical and physical perspective. They reflect on my Polish Heritage and a wistful desire to return to a former time and homeland. Through the traditional technique of intaglio combined with contemporary mediums, it has been my aim to find a cultural identity, where travel has become the foundation for both survival and inspiration.
