The artist moves in the area of ​​conceptual art, creating her own theoretical concepts and ideological assumptions. Her creative strategy is based on the belief that art results from an internal need. Her paintings are like painting haiku, a concise language of information, not only a vision of a symbol, but also synonyms of words and concepts. Święcicka reaches for the canon and frame, using the simplest geometric forms. She called the space she creates “internal form”, an image of memory – an engram. He paints as an expression of the process of cognition, using his own paradigm, alphabet of shape and color to express content previously expressed in prose. He says about his work: “The recipe for my art is tradition, classic form, and the spice is emotion.” Her works are therefore subtle but deeply thought out, introducing the viewer to the world of form and emotions, tradition and modernity.
