Kasia Wrona Exhibition opens at CENTRO CULTURAL DE LAGOS on 27th March

An exhibition by Polish artist Kasia Wrona entitled “Flames of Inspiration” opens at the Lagos Cultural Centre on 27th March and will run until 22nd May.

“Flames of Inspiration” is an exhibition of works primarily inspired by the intense and disturbing experience felt by the artist during and following the forest fires that devastated Serra de Monchique in 2003

Observing the destruction of the fire and the subsequent self regeneration of natural life, Kasia Wrona created a series of paintings, and has now put them into context for the exhibition at CCL by including an installation consisting of many objects / “eyes.” In this series of works the artist expresses her interpretation of the primordial elements of life and affirms artistically her “spiritual kinship with nature.”
