“Remembering is a form of forgetting.” Milan Kundera’s aphorism informs Anna Gryglak’s paintings, which are testimonials to those daily moments that escape our attention. Gryglak’s early years were spent in Poland, far removed from the fast pace of New York. So, in deference to her past she dedicates her art to slowing down time, to filtering the noise and to remembering the small details of the larger picture. She works in oils to allow time for editing and to filter out the unnecessary information. Consciousness of her surroundings is crucial to her process.
