Match Girl, framed stained glass mosaic, 42" x 32", 2011 available for purchase
This mosaic was the featured artwork at my solo exhibit "Match Girl: a Body of Work by Kasia Polkowska" The exhibit took place at the CMS Gallery at the Chicago Mosaic School running from May 31st till July 27th 2011.
The mosaic is based on an image I painted a few years back while studying at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. My original painting depicted the imaginary spaces I thought up while reading Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Match Girl" - one of the most memorable fairy tales from my childhood.
