Slices of wood become canvases for magical paintings in the art of Anna Kucharska. The Poland-based artist adorns these abandoned boards with depictions of animals and people inhabiting charming rural settings. In doing so, she merges the theme of illustration with matter.

From foxes trotting through a snowy forest to a hedgehog gazing at a shooting star, these paintings are portals to faraway, dreamy places. Kucharska uses a vivid color palette of blues and greens and a simplistic folk style to create images reminiscent of a fairy tale. All the characters seem content with their surroundings, demonstrating a love of nature.

Although she paints her illustrations on pieces of wood, Kucharska does not try to hide the variations of the material. Instead, she embraces her organic shapes and patterns leaving a “frame” of unpainted wood around the finished piece. This allows his earthy paints to interact with the beauty of the wood canvas, adding another dimension to these enchanting works of art.
