Sylwia Gorak is a vocal performer and painter. As a painter, she seeks to reevaluate the inherently awesome beauty of landscapes by introducing man-made objects, both inconsequential and architectural, that create a tension between a sense of permanence and materialism. Inspired by her hometown of Lezajsk, Poland, her paintings also draw from prior residency experiences in London, Osaka, and Sierre, Switzerland. A vocalist and performance artist as well, Gorak is also interested in acoustics and the material properties of sound. In 2001 she was a soprano with The Paderewski Festival Singers in a concert at Carnegie Hall. She intends to explore both her visual and vocal pursuits in an American setting. Born in Poland, Gorak graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan and studied Voice in Krakow.
In an ongoing collaboration, the residencies of CEC ArtsLink fellows from Poland are co-sponsored by the Polish Cultural Institute in New York.
