" Angels may seem a banal subject, usually their perfect, sweet figurines serve as ornaments or something like a modern amulet. Magdalena Karłowicz's angels are far from perfect - they do not have perfect proportions, noisy wings and wavy hair. resigned, their hands helplessly lowered, they cannot get up. They have scarred wings, their feet are stuck to the ground, so even if they raise their heads and climb on toes, their fragile bodies are trapped in the weaves of strong ropes. Portuguese Nobel Prize winner Jose Saramago says: "... people are angels without wings, and it is so beautiful, to be born without wings and grow them for yourself..." - Małgorzata Nikolska

(Excerpt from "Traces on the sand", Kraina Bugu, 2019)
