Somewhat naturally, the subtle cycles of “Loves”, “Heart” and “Skin” transfer us into the realm of feelings, emotions and desires. The „Loves” series is made of works submitted to nature; strange, occasionally amusing, half-plant, half-animal forms, placing the beholder in the very core of the organic, delicate matter of life. The ”Skin” remains devoted to the sense of touch. The sensuality of the cycle is literally rooted in the surface of the paintings. SKIN – meaning an outfit - a costume, but also a thin boundary between somebody/something  and the reality. This thin skin of moths, covered with delicate hairs, trembles and gets numb encountering the outside world...The artist polishing and honing the several applied layers of paint, created haptic works, which add to the desire for the direct contact /tempt /seduce.
A heart is a heart, whereas the ‘’Heart” of Swinarska elicits ambiguity. The transparent pictures cut through by the energy of light. The energy liberating a female body. Suspended in space, it acquires the mode of peculiar non-existence by the simultaneous emanation of its presence.
