Following the trend of highlighting our talented and dedicated art academic staff, this week's Framed Fridays features a collection piece from Associate Professor Dr Beata Batorowicz - introducing Tales From Wroclaw, 2011-12.
Batorowicz holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts with Distinction from USQ, as well as a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) and a Doctorate of Visual Art from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University
She was born in Wroclaw, Poland in 1978 and immigrated to Australia at the age of five.
Batorowicz's artwork has been recognised for its mythological and fairy-tale qualities, and immortalises her ongoing fascination of symbolically addressing the Polish/German historical context of World War Two.
Tales from Wroclaw are a series of delicately intricate prints depicting the wintertime landscape of Poland and the forests of Wroclaw - the woodland home of Batorowicz’s fairy-tale creatures.
