DRESSES AND TUTUS
Dresses series is her obsession for years. All dream-like. Together they orchestrate a subtle serenade, pervaded with sensual wishes, energetic and unsentimental. The ability of the medium to create a message about interiority - which is a far cry from the stolid display of the dress. Fascinated by the grace, subtlety and variety of a single silhouette clad in many attires with marvelous textures, patterns and script-signs enmeshed in a literally physical atmosphere. The puzzling question arises: can you guess what’s inside those dresses, what desires, what palpitating heart inhabits them, and what keenness of the mind-eye continuum propels into life these fabric shells? It all seems to be about a blissful Venetian contemplative experience... “  Ileana Marcoulesco   
 
The artist uses her own emotions to a subliminal transliteration often perceived as absencepresence: the body, light and naked, lies symbolically on deserts and gardens background and the clothes leave the imprint of the absent body. Ewa Bathelier is exhibited in many galleries and public places in France and abroad. Her works are displayed in many collections around the world, she designed sets and costumes for Samuel Beckett’s and Robert Pinget’s plays. Under their literary influence, she has perfected a minimalist style imbued with strong emotions.
