The artistic activity of Jagoda Adamus – a graduate of an academy which cultivates the creative thought of Władysław Strzemiński – is all but devoid of expressions inspired by cold geometry. She draws her inspiration from the entire cultural heritage, especially in the field of painting. Other sources of inspiration involve literature, religious beliefs and traditions and philosophical thought. Her work represents personal reflection on the fundamental problems of existence. Both her life and art are governed by harmony. Her work have been presented at national and international exhibitions in Kraków, Katowicw, Łódź, Poznań, Szczecin, Toruń, Wrocław (Poland), Kanagawa (Japan), Pego Alicante (Spain), Pescara (Italy), Tuzla (Bosnia and Herzegovina), London, Paris and Toronto.
