Shedding Light on Emotions. An Exhibition of Works by Joanna Sarapata

31.10.2023 – 8.12.2023

As many as eighteen paintings by Joanna Sarapata, one of the most recognisable contemporary artists, will be presented in the historical interiors of the Lentz Villa as of 31st October at an exhibition titled ‘Shedding Light on Emotions’. Well known for her extraordinary representations of womanhood, in Szczecin Sarapata presents both her most recent paintings and unique works kept in private collections.
In the course of her career, now spanning more than thirty years, Sarapata has developed her own characteristic, unmistakable style. Her sensuous ballerinas and captivating nudes never cease to delight audiences.

The woman is at the centre of her artistic reflections – her beauty and sensuality, but also a wide spectrum of emotions, frequently expressed through body language. For many years, Sarapata has shared with her audience a wide spectrum of varied experiences. Qualities that may at first seem like polar opposites become a unity in her paintings, resulting in extraordinary beauty. Feminine strength and delicacy, the body’s sensual appeal and its transitory nature – all have a place in her compelling works.

Visitors to the Lentz Villa will have an opportunity to see as many as 18 different works, which represent a cross-section of the artist’s creative universe. They convey movement and emotions, taking the viewers into the mysterious world of womanhood. The paintings now to be shown in Szczecin tell the story of emotions and bring out their unique beauty. The exhibition titled ‘Shedding Light on Emotions’ is a universal expression of femininity, touching the viewer’s heart on many levels. The exhibition comprises, apart from works from private collections, also the most recent, previously unpresented paintings, prepared specially for this event at the Lentz Villa.

A graduate of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Art in Paris, Sarapata has had her paintings exhibited since 1987, including in France (where she lived and worked for nearly 20 years) as well as Spain (where she was active for the next 8 years), Monaco, Germany, the United States, and Switzerland. Since 1998 they have also been presented in Poland.



The exhibition ‘Shedding Light on Emotions’ can be visited every day except Sundays and Mondays. The opening hours are as follows:

Tuesdays – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Wednesdays – 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Fridays – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
