Paulina MichnowskaTaking a pearl
Paulina Michnowska creates visual allegories, often humorous, rooted in autobiographical anecdotes, historical folklore and the dullness of mundanity. This painting forms part of a pair that was directly inspired by the recent and controversial enforcement of near-total abortion ban in Poland, the artist’s homeland. The hand is holding a pill, representing a gesture for women’s empowerment, freedom and control over their own body.
