Sylvie Fajfrowska often starts painting by applying a layer of red onto the canvas, in order to ensure a degree of sensuousness, something apparent in all of her works today.
Yet, as the painting are shaped, their sensuousness is enclosed within the strict outlines of the figures and wrapped in the generally perfectly smooth finish : constantly underlying, it stretches the forms’ surface to the maximum without overflowing. Control is characteristic of Sylvie Fajfrowska’s works ; she pushes it to the extreme where sensuousness might be totally reined in. She also orchestrates her compositions so as to take the selected subjects to a degree of simplification that places them on the  line between childishness and universality. (….)
Often presented in large formats, Sylvie Fajfrowska’s works occupy a space that takes them out of context, a monochrome space in which they float, like ideal forms. Even more unsettling, there is a certain ambiguity in the way the space surrounds the object : it is difficult to tell wether,  as flat surface, it acts as a background or wether as a halo of air and light, it envelops the object.
