    My work is about drifting from place to place without knowing where you’re going or where you came from. It depicts a Polish landscape and bus stops that appear to be out of use. The paintings are meant to evoke feelings of discomfort and nostalgia; feelings you might have towards a place you wouldn’t call home, as they represent the lack of it, but a place you are still strangely familiar with. The work is postcard sized and painted with acrylic on watercolour paper, further emphasizing the idea the passage through time and space.
