Dorota Borowa is a Polish artist based in Dublin. Dorota received her MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. She works with painting, drawing, collage, video and photography. Borowa has participated in many solo and group exhibitions in Poland but also in Hungary, Lithuania and Norway and recently in Ireland. She has been awarded a number of Artist In Residency Programs (last residency in Cill Rialaig in Ballinskelligs, Ireland 2015) and also has been longlisted for the 2016 Aesthetica Art Prize. She is a member of the Ormond Studios in Dublin.
Exploring has been Dorota’s main subject and source of inspiration. The process of painting. Light. A place between reality and abstraction. The process of painting has become the starting point for all her recent works. She often uses tools other than brushes to create a meaning for her paintings as in the Touching the Moon series which she has painted using her fingerprints. Her paintings become a place between accident and design, between acceptance and destruction.
