Natalia Załuska

Natalia Załuska is one of our local artists currently using a studio space offered by studio das weisse haus.

(…) Natalia Załuska’s works, in which generally a variety of materials are combined with a great sensibility for textures and haptic qualities, frequently refer to natural impressions, yet these are condensed and abstracted into primary structures which appear to be minimalistic in their geometric clarity, without actually being Minimal Art. It is a question of the sensual variation of a limited vocabulary of forms and colours, which opens up directly into the confinement of a new, different perspective on small and minor alterations, on a variety of forms of relief-like bulges, and the limitless possibility of the combination of geometric basic forms (…).
