Agnieszka Nienartowicz’ Sweet Burden

Agnieszka Nienartowicz' Sweet Burden
Nicodim will inaugurate its new annex gallery with Agnieszka Nienartowicz: Sweet Burden, the artist’s first solo show in the United States. Nienartowicz’s hyper-realistic oil paintings recontextualize Old Master, Renaissance, and Catholic interpretations of bible scenes and religious tales, in many instances layering them directly onto female bodies and faces. Raised in the Catholic church, Nienartowicz acutely understands the emotional impact of religion and how belief systems and spiritual practices can leave a lasting impression on one’s psyche.
