Sylwia Kowalczyk (b. Poland) is an artist based in Edinburgh. Her work looks at using optical illusions and analogue trompe-l’oeils to look at identity, fear, illusion and distortion. Her series Lethe, which takes it’s name from the river that cleanses Dante in Purgatory, won in the PDN Photo Annual 2016 ‘personal’ category and will form part of her first solo show in the United States in the Blue Sky Gallery, Portland in November 2017.
