Born in Poland, Ilona Stanska spent all her childhood years during the period of communist occupation. This is where she developed her unique appreciation of the finer details of life. Now living in Oslo Norway she has become self-styled artist who is producing some outstanding images of her homeland and its peoples.
Stanska's photography comes in two distinctive styles. The type of traditional photography including landscapes and portraits, as well as her new artistic form where she is using a unique and self-developed technique of painting her images. The technique she calls “Prating” and has taken the artist more than three years to perfect to a point where Stanska was happy enough to display her works.
Basically “Prating” involves multiple layers of printing with photographic ink as well as hand painting of the final images, some processes Stanska is not prepared to share with us, still her work speaks for itself. This new form of art has become acclaimed by her peers around the world with exhibitions throughout Europe and now “down under”. What makes it even more interesting is that each image is 1 of 1 as there are no copies.
Stanska captures a different point of view in her images, many of which are inspired by her childhood in Poland.
