Arete Gallery: Art by Marzena and Magda

Marzena and Magda

Meet the Artists

Marzena Haupa lives in Princeton, NJ and is a member of the West Windsor Arts, where some of her artwork hangs. Her stylized face portraits are created with different mediums, including acrylic, sprays, oil pastels
and occasionally digital images on canvas. Painting is her new passion that she discovered during the pandemic. Through painting, she found inner peace and balance. Her love of nature and people inspires what she paints. She prefers painting portraits. Through the means of contemporary art, she captures the beauty she finds around herself to share it with others. Her style combines abstract art and figurative painting, allowing her to capture the emotions, character, mood, and beauty in nature and people. Vibrant colors, shapes, lines, and patterns give Marzena the emotional freedom to interpret specific atmospheres for each of her paintings.

Magda Dodd is a local artist from Lawrenceville NJ. “Painting is a mystery to me. Not only do I not understand it, I’m not convinced that I am supposed to. When I paint I release my feelings without words. I become focused in total chaos and emotions fly. I draw inspiration from my surroundings, color combinations and subjects. Creating art makes me look at the world differently. I tend to see things which I could never see before, even though they were always present just there.” – Magda Dodd

Not unlike her sister, Magda’s artwork gives an introspective look into a colorful world! Magda also finds her inspiration in nature, interpreting her surroundings by painting beautiful flowers, mountains and lakes.
