Ewa Cwikla

A red-haired little girl dressed in shiny blue satin assumes a very uncomfortable-looking pose, head, arms and torso on the hardwood floor, legs supported by a velvet armchair. You can imagine the strain she might be feeling at the small of her back, which is curved acrobatically into a rather extreme arch, and the pressure she might feel in her torso and neck, which is supporting the angled weight of her body. Her expression is defiant, resigned, sulking, as if she’s been denied something she wanted? Or maybe she’s been sent to her room without supper.
