Our little hearts flutter at the sight of these artworks by Hanna Ilczyszyn as they retrieve flashbacks of childhood. Her mellow and emotionally complex images preserve the places we once lived, whistles of the wind, the longings, dilemmas and aspirations we’ve had. We love her effortless attitude and sweet melancholic disposition. The beclouded faces and blurred masks perfectly illustrate the distance of time. The tone is mellow and nuanced, it shows the wisdom of a grown-up after a decade of hindsight, skipping through the timeline. Her artworks sway to the ebb and flow of our own memories, they keep them bright and breathing.
