ArtCast featuring Pola Dwurnik


In this ArtCast: Pola Dwurnik, a young polish painter on her current exhibition of oil paintings at Basel's Austellungraum Klingental. We spoke of her renditions of banknotes, imagined Cien Pesos with Frida Kalo (above), a series of self-portraits based on traditional classics, and others based on x-rays of her own body. Oilpainting is a skill she learned as a child from her own father Edward. The 16 new paintings were created during her stay as artist in residence at Stiftung Laurenz-Haus, Basel.
 Listen and Enjoy!
