Barbara Palka Winek

Barbara Palka Winek is a multifaceted artist who creates paintings that defy categorization, yet continue a legacy of the quasi-abstracted figuration in the vein of DeKooning, Velasco, and Auerbach. The Cracow-based painter is a virtuoso artist who has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally in venues as diverse as Rome and Warsaw, New York and Frankfurt. Winek’s art is simultaneously lyrical and mysterious, jubilant yet pensive. By employing these paradoxes, she skillfully applies a multihued palette of soft and passionate color which creates a sense of memory and longing for faraway people and places.
