Polish artist Barbara Licha, based in Australia, is interested in the complexity of the human condition and explores parallels between actual people and the ones in her imagination. I particularly like her wire figure sculptures with their gestures in their tangled worlds or boxes. In her work, Licha tries to convey what she sees inside people: their wishes, dreams and desires.
Everything about people interests me. The complexity of people’s behaviour has always intrigued me, and inspired me to visually express the range of emotion we see in the human condition. I explore the parallels between ordinary people that I come across in real life and the people that reside in my imagination, my own representations of emotion.
