MEDUSA – was one of the Gorgon sisters and daughter of Phorkys and Keto, the children of Gaea (Earth) and Oceanus (Ocean). Project lies in the conscious transformation of basic features of the epoch serving as a inspiration and base to very strong expression. As a processual object, sculpture still reveals its new face.he Medusa has been portrayed by Leonardo da Vinci Caravaggio or Salvadore Dalí. In my “Medusa” sculpture the snakes are the plurality of arms in her double personality. It is an artifact of art, both traditional (forms refer to the old masters) and modern because of the multiplicity of character it has. Sculpture allows us to use many senses, which are the basis of perceiving. Changes depend on the way of exposure, lights and the angle of view through reflections in a chrome base. Kate Lipecky – Born in 1984 in Szczecinek, Poland. Kate Lipecky graduated in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow (Poland). In 2008, Lipecky carried out the photography project from the movie set „The Mill and the Cross” drama, directed by Lech Majewski. Her other achievement was the Catharsis Project (2011-2013) which she created, developed and executed as the head of the artistic group. Since 2014, she has been leading the Kate Lipecky – Sculpture Foundation that is aimed to promote modern art, popularize and improve the access to the knowledge concerning visual culture and its tradition as well as to support artists’ activities on at the market. In 2015, her sculpture was invited to Museu Europeu d’Art Modern Barcelona. Furthemore, her sculptures are also exhibited in the permanent collection of the National Museum in Gdansk, Poland as well as in many other art collections in Dubai, Belgium, Poland, Lithuania, and – besides – her numerous works are presented not only at art fairs but also in the state institutions like, among the others, in the prestigious Centum Rzeźby Polskiej („Center of Polish Sculpture„) in Oronsko.Lipecky decided on the strongly expressive creation, but subjected to certain rigors as a part of balance between classicism and avant-garde. Through a blend of different periods and anachronism combines aesthetic excellence of antique culture with strong expressionism.
