Bettina Bereś – studied art history at the Jagiellonian University. She is a painter. In 2001 she received a scholarship from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. Her one-man shows were presented at the Pryzmat Gallery, Otwarta Pracownia, the Koło Gallery and others, and group shows at the Contemporary Art Gallery “Bunkier Sztuki” in Krakow, Center for the Arts “Łaźnia” in Gdansk, the Szara Gallery in Cieszyn. Bettina lives and works in Cracow. Her paintings are inspired by woman’s everyday chores. She places everyday objects (such as jugs, bowls, jars) against monochromatic and modest backgrounds, simplifying their form to signs, reducing them to icons, objects remembered from childhood. Thus she endows them with new meanings and emotions. Everyday life becomes a work of art.
