Laura Makabresku, a Polish visual artist and photographer, dwells in the dreamland where her creative imagination thrives and creates fascinating artwork cloaked with fairy-tale narratives and mystical symbolism. Her artistic photography is a coalescence of love, beauty, innocence, pain and death, captured in surreal fashion. The series “The Garden of Wounds” and “As When They Depart” along with the other images featured below are just some of the artist’s disturbing yet amazingly beautiful artworks. Please scroll down and be lost in her alluring and haunting dreamscape!

 The Garden of Wounds

My photographies are like screenshots from beautiful but cruel fairy tales. Their narrations are not straight. Images that appear are more like feelings that come during a lecture of an old folk-based story – full of witchcrafts and retributions. The structure of my works is similar to the structure of a dream where natural tendencies of collecting and organizing impulses and motivations coincide with irrational clashes of objects and feelings. Isolation and wounds are closed into patterns, uneasy and artificial orders – visual spells created in order to divide beastillness from humanity and dreams from horror.
