Katarzyna Tretyn-Zečević

born in 1983, Włocławek

Received a PhD in Fine Arts at the Nicolaus Copernicus Univeristy in Toruń. She was awarded with the Tymon Niesiołowski Award, founded by the Faculty of Fine Arts at NCU in Toruń, in the category of visual arts. Her PhD thesis, titled Imponderables – The Unity of Spirit And Matter, was written under the supervision of prof. Lech Wolski.

In 2010, she created the first works from the Imponderables series – square canvases of 190×190 cm. At that time, she made a decision to reduce the number of artistic tools used in her works to fabrics and threads in various shades of white. All of the paintings from the Imponderables series share the same format and composition – a circle centered on a square background..
