Monika Sosnowska’s life and work, the nominees of the Hugo Boss prize
The focus of this paper is to provide an analysis on one of the nominees of the Hugo Boss prize. The paper talks about Monika Sosnowska who represents the country of Poland. The paper writes about Sosnowska’s work and life from a personal and professional point of view.
Born in 1972, Monika Sosnowska is a Polish native who has dedicated a substantial amount of her life on art and architecture. Sosnowska represents modern contemporary art which feature new art forms that defy traditional art. Art has transformed from the time of its inception to present day. Traditional art consists of perfect projections that do not break the rules of art. Her work defies all the traditional rules in that she gets her inspiration from the art pieces that are far from perfect. Her work is contrary to the norm due to the use of irregular sizes and structures that display errors (Fer, p. 232).
One of her most successful art pieces is the star shaped installation of illuminations. This art piece is features shapes that are both regular and irregular. Her work is colored in black which brings out a certain type of sophistication seen in modern art. Most of her work is displayed in an upside down manner so as to reflect on the defiant nature of her art. Monika stands to become one of the most instrumental artists in the competition due to her opinioned art pieces. She thus serves as a source of inspiration for future and aspiring artists (Reynolds, p. 154).
Art is a form of expression of an individual’s feelings and thoughts. Art can thus be referred to as a way of life. Most of the artists get their inspiration from the surrounding environment. According to my opinion, Sosnowska represents the modern day artist who forms their own rules and incorporates them into traditional methods. The piece of art captures the attention of the viewer due to its precise nature. The use of different shapes and dimensions shows the artists diversity in terms of experience and talent. The artists work is monumental in that it makes a viewer think outside the box. This is one of the qualities of a good art piece making her qualify as a nominee (Hickman, p. 211).
In conclusion, Sosnowska is thus the one to watch in the ongoing competition. Her work stands out from the crowd due to its simple yet structural features. Art continues to influence the society in all aspects of life. Most of the artist derives their inspiration from their surrounding environment. Sosnowska is one of the artists who continue to inspire the world. Her nomination is thus well received due to the hard work and esteem that her work represents.
