Lucja Radwan, (born 1951 in Tuchòw, Poland) is an Austrian artist of Polish origin who lives in Gols, Burgenland. The professional handling of various media is remarkable. Radwan is a passionate watercolorist. Her watercolors are delicate webs of light and colors. She reduces motifs from nature to the essentials. In her oil paintings she has been dealing with the variety of shapes of stalactite caves for some time. Shapes are reduced, colors are added. The viewer is transported into a dream world with flowing boundaries and proportions. The artist also works in acrylic, which is primarily a representation of caves or an examination of the diversity of nature. You shouldn’t ignore your precise ink drawings on various topics, including “Second World War”, “Border Crossers”, “Light and Shadow”. Since 1985 her pictures have been presented through solo exhibitions or participation in exhibitions worldwide, such as Australia, France, Israel, Japan, Korea, Austria, Poland, Hungary and the USA.
Her pictures are in important collections.
