Telling stories is a part of fine art photography of Katarzyna and Marcin Owczarek‘s project based on surrealistic imagery. The new series titled “My Hearth is An Animal” brings elaborate compositions combining human and animal elements. They employ animal characters in human settings, often in a social and spiritual context, because each creature brings to life beautiful and original symbolism and emotional values. They are all connected, people, animals, nature…as a one living organism. In every human being there is a piece of animal instincts and in every animal there is a piece of human being: soul, feelings, emotions, fragility. Animals show human emotions. Their observations reveal beauty, sometimes it is found in the unconventional way. For this reason their whole work deals with the relationship between Man and Nature, in particular with animals .These artworks are both planned and subconscious. Sometimes it is deliberate observation, sometimes just like a dream half remembered. Strange encounters at the edge of perception. They create imaginary landscapes inviting the viewer to immerse themselves into a world of dreams and mystery to see the reality in diverse ways.
