Inspired by Carpets

Paintings by Olga Wolniak are on display at Warsaw's Pod Blach± Palace as part of a permanent exhibition of Far Eastern carpets from the collection of the Teresa Sahakian Foundation. The display brings together two artistic worlds, that of European painting and that of oriental weaving. Wolniak's art is inspired by Far Eastern carpets. Her works deconstruct oriental patterns and reinterpret ancient signs and symbols. Sometimes she is interested in the big picture, at other times she seems to be fascinated by details and color arrangements. Overall, her paintings tend to glorify carpets, lending them artistic-rather than solely utilitarian-values.

The exhibition encourages visitors to inspect the paintings next to the carpets that inspired the artist.
