The focal point of the Dorota Sadovska's artistic program, balancing on the inspiring borderline of classical painting and photography, is the body and its representation.  Shortly after her debut exhibition she captured public attention by untraditional representation of the figure in connection with innovative and bold use of iconography of the saints.  The basic element of her compositions became a naked human figure shown from above in a steep foreshortening or in untraditional motion.  The artist also cleverly started using symbolism of colors, in particular yellow and white, and employing motifs of Christian attributes.  In one of her latest cycle of paintings - "small stories about great love," the artist focuses on ages.  She applies strategies well-known from her previous work;  However, they have undergone a noticeable development.  The basic composition element of the paintings is still a human figure shown in a steep foreshortening, place against a monochromatic , often almost colorless background.  As the artist uses symbolism of sky blue color, the figures seem to levitate in celestial space.  

Dorota Sadovska was born in 1973 in Bratislava, Slovakia.  She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia and at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts in Dijon, France.  She lives and works in Bratislava, Slovakia.
