Sylwia Gorak

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 .
