“Women Shapes in Water (Nymphs)”, by contemporary artist, Maciej Cieśla
This colourful artwork is a very characteristic work by Maciej Cieśla, a contemporary artist from Poland. As with most of his paintings, it is inspired by nature, folklore, and social subjects. The world he creates in his paintings contain characters borrowed from folklore and fantasy.
Cieśla on “Women Shapes in Water (Nymphs)”: “This painting refers to nymphs; nixies and mythological figures which I place into the forms and colours of the light in nature.”
