Janina Myronova (Wroclaw, Poland) is a ceramic sculptor who creates narrative through figurative forms and composed backdrops. Utilizing a specific and distorted representation of the body, each composition shows a different personality and personal story to collectively reference a graphic novel and arcing story. Imparting her own emotion through linework, Myronova’s works are strategically charged with color to saturate and amplify their individual stories.
Janina Myronova received her MFA at the Lviv National Academy of Fine Arts (Lviv, Ukraine) in 2012, an MFA at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts and Design (Wroclaw, Poland) in 2013, and her PhD at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts and Design (Wroclaw, Poland) in 2019. Continually developing her work and practice, she has attended numerous residencies including opportunities’ at the New Taipei Yingge Ceramics Musesm (New Taipei, Taiwan), Clayarch Gimhae Musem (Gimhae-si, Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea), Lefebvre and Fils (Paris, France), International Ceramic Research Center (Guldagergaard, Denmark), Northern Clay Center (Minneapolis, USA), Archie Bray Foundation (Helena, USA).
