Klaudia Kosziba is a painter and pedagogue at the Academy of Fine Arts and Applied Design in Bratislava. Since 2008, she has led the Studio of Painting, which she had taken over from prof. Ján Berger. Surface division of paintings, distinctive reduction of the colour scale, the meaning (or absence) of the figure suggest author’s sensitivity towards human relations and the immediate environment. That’s where she finds her subjects. They grow from mere descriptiveness and melancholy into the fatal irreversibility of the process they capture. Even the seemingly suppressed details have the unmistakable effect and, above all, it is them what plays the role of the representational leitmotiv. The painting thus acquires new layers of meaning that need to be uncovered gradually and ceaselessly. The paintings are vehicles of strong emotions, and the author succeeds in transferring them onto the viewer.
