“Support artists who create the memory of the times we live in. Leave a good mark for future generations.” – these were our first thoughts when we got acquainted with the unusual project of building a collection of contemporary art at the Museum of Warsaw. We are very pleased to announce that we are joining the group of companies that will support the Museum of Warsaw Foundation in this important project.
Thanks to our donation, the Museum of Warsaw purchased Marta Nadolle’s painting “I miss you, but I live here because there are opportunities”.
The painting “I miss you, but I live here because there are opportunities” is a kind of self-portrait – it shows the artist talking to her friend after work (Nadolle is an art teacher).
The quote refers to the possibilities offered by living in Warsaw. The artist settled in the capital to finish her studies at the Painting Department of the Academy of Fine Arts. She comes from a small town in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, and her move to the capital was initially associated with great longing and loneliness. Art was a way to channel emotions: working through everyday, sometimes painful, funny or surprising events in painting allowed her to tame her feelings and look at herself.
The artist treats her painting in a utilitarian way, small paintings are a kind of visual diary in which the artist works through more or less happy everyday life. Her works tell the story of a young woman’s life in Warsaw. Depending on the period in which they were created, they concern difficulties in establishing relationships, painful aspects of growing up or humorous events in the life of a painter.
