Marta Jedrysko was born in Nowy Targ, Poland in 1959. She studied painting in Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow, where in 1983 she earned her MFA.
She lives and works in the Netherlands since 1985. Although her style has clearly evolved from abstract expressionism to a warm, almost impressionistic style during the years, it is neither Polish nor Dutch.
She takes inspiration from still life, human or animal figures, and flowers. From this starting point she abstracts the object into her own world. She works with a marvelous selection of bright and warm colors… an explosion of life.
Jedrysko’s signature style is coating the canvas with a layer of liquid gloss after the painting is finished. This idea originated throughout her studies in Poland and after many years, her wish to trap various materials between the painted canvas and the gloss layer, has been fulfilled… making the colours ever more vivid while adding an extra layer of depth and complexity to her work.
