Imagination directed towards the stars makes us, women, dream. Stars radiance creates an impression of a magical world, filled with surreal landscape, a perfect background for our metamorphosis. The desire to change, need for a break from the reality and infiltration of the world of imagination is a topic taken up by many painters. Anna Wojciechowska-Paprocka loves life, its pace and tone, draws the joy of each day. There are moments when she moves into the world of Sandro Botticelli, Dante G. Rossetti, Jan Toorop and Marc Chagall. In their paintings she finds mood, mystery, lightness of form and color palette that reflects the richness of feelings - close to her own. She skillfully combines elements of symbolism and expressionism, creating her own style, where boundaries between the world of fantasy and reality disappear. Women on the paintings of Anna Wojciechowska-Paprocki are romantic, ephemeral. Subtle, yet strong with color, changing moods, uncertain of their feelings. Honesty with yourself, your feelings and the viewer is the best thing artist can give. Techniques in which Anna Wojciechowska – Paprocka creates her works - acrylic and watercolor - are extremely difficult, requiring explicit conception and execution excellence.
