Born in Krakow, Poland, Elzbieta received her formal art training at the Ontario College of Art and Design where she mastered old European painting techniques. Strongly influenced by the tradition of 17th century Dutch landscape painting, the artist's paintings are infused with a uniquely personal treatment of light and space.
Krawecka's paintings depict large open spaces defined by pattern formations always on the brink of change. In this subtle fluidity where nothing is constant, mass suddenly dematerializes while sky takes on substance, space becoming tangible. This effect occurs through the use of thick and opaque paint often applied with a palette knife, and translucent glazes of thinner washes.
