My linocuts are inspired by black color and the strong contrast between black paint and white paper. Black and white contain hundreds of color values and shades. I would like to show the specific nature of these colors and many different hues hidden in their structure. White color is very important for my creative activity. I would like to emphasize its material impact on atmosphere and composition.

Getting to Know Natalia

Natalia Pawlus likes to say her linocuts are not abstractions, but rather everything you see is exactly what she intends for you to see. She got her start as a professor’s assistant working on graphics – preparing pieces and exploring with ink, pencil, and paint. For her larger works, Natalia uses individual matrices for the mold, piecing them together on a paper for the finished product. In 2014 she received a PhD in Fine Arts. She now works in the Graphic Department of the University of Silesia.
