Seeing Double with Anna Wypych

by Nick PizanaPosted on

The surreal oil paintings of Polish artist Anna Wypych use realistic techniques to yield fantastical results. Throughout many of her paintings, Wypych replicates her often nude subject several times in various poses. Sometimes the models appear like clones, taking up different spaces in a piece, and other times they overlap, creating an aesthetic similar to long-exposure photography. These photographic qualities can also be found in Wypych’s more expressionistic works, as well. In these pieces, Wypych applies muted hues of blue and grey with loose brushstrokes to suggest movement, like a blurry photograph that was taken with a shaky hand. In both cases, Wypych seems to capture an otherworldly quality in her subjects.
