An angel is generally a supernatural being found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Humanity. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God’s tasks. More on Angels

Lidia Wylangowska: “My art tells my story. It’s a story of my world, of my thoughts and emotions entwined in an internal dialogue. And some of it can be expressed only through painting. It is incredible, how fairy-tales I heard once-upon-a-time, in my childhood actually influenced my life and defined who I am. 

The technique I use in my works is changing and evolving as I do. There is a lot my very own inventions in it but the very base comes from Renaissance Masters. Masaccio, Leonardo da Vinci , Raphael are commonly considered to have pioneered the use of chiaroscuro to create the illusion of relief – notably in the modelling of the human body. Chiaroscuro modeling is supporting the effect of color. In order to use the under painting efficiently, I put the color transparently. The transparent layer of paint spread over the top of an opaque passage that has been given some time to dry. Light travels through the glaze and is reflected back off of the opaque layer below. The light in the painting constructed this way lit the color from the bottom. More on Lidia Wylangowska

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
