Agata Ciechomska

Agata Ciechomska is a visual artist based in Lodz, Poland. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textile Design from Lodz University of Technology, Poland, and a Master of Fine Arts in Textile Design from University of Borås, The Swedish School of Textiles. Her artworks have been exhibited both, within and outside Europe.
Agata's work explores colour perception in relation to material and light as colour appearance is a complex phenomenon. Depending on the properties of an object, absorption or reflection of light, humans are able to perceive it in certain colour. But perception of colour depends not only on presence of light. Its intensity and temperature depends also on adjacent surfaces and spatial placement called colour context. In addition, the notion of colour context leads further to visual colour mixing.
This phenomenon, also known as optical mixing, can be observed in the artworks. It occurs when small areas of colour placed next to each other, when viewed from a distance blend and create a new colour produced directly in the retina of the eye. That means, in order for the art to become real, an active participation of the viewer is essential. The artworks seen from the front seem less dense and intense in colour, whereas when viewed at an angle, look more homogeneous and colours get more vibrant, therefore it is the movement of a viewer that enables the transitions and changes the reality.
