Isabella Sedeka

Short Profile

Isabella Sedeka, born in Opole (Poland) in 1979, enjoyed several years of artistic training in Milan and Venice as well as in Hamburg and Berlin. At the structural level, the captivating appeal of her abstract works lies in the use of precious materials, above all real gold and silver, in combination with oils or acrylics. The somewhat ornamentally structured works deliberately show traces of corrosion and develop a patina that brings to mind past ages – yet at the same time they have an ultra-modern appearance. With prolonged viewing, the interplay of continually forming and dispelling patterns and textures gives rise to a mystic dialog. Depending on the incidence of light and the viewing angle, the pictures glow from within and award the viewer with glimpses into realms of heightened senses. In the eternal interplay between being and seeming, the fullness of life comes to expression in the contrast with the impermanence of the form. – Since the opening of her Berlin atelier in 2013, Isabella Sedeka’s works have met with great acclaim.

Statement

»My monochromatic works of art are a projection surface of the confrontation with ease and depth, as experienced in changing daylight.«
