Gosia Poraj Artist Bio:
My recollections of places are always ephemeral and blurry. What’s left to be with are the impressions and feelings, colours and smells. Every time I try to remember the same place I have to start over in search for hints in my head, but they’re not reliable enough. They’re intangible. Sometimes it feels like I had a word on the tip of my tongue. There is no point of chasing it. I have to use the way around it to describe it best I can. Through my paintings I attempt to catch and preserve at least the impressions of what I want to remember. In my own visual language consisting of shapes instead of words I am trying to convey my relationship with nature. The forms I have on my mind are very simplified and minimal - scattered between different perspectives, shown from different angles, constantly searching the harmony with vast emptiness of the paper. Each work is some kind of search for me to find the best form to express what I have on my mind. I feel that my technique of painting was highly influenced by printmaking. The way of creating layers, shaping the forms and blending colours is very similar to the way I create my multi coloured prints. My paintings are also somewhat planned with the idea of adding layers but it gives me more freedom of how I develop and finish them.
