My linocuts are inspired by the strong contrast between black ink and white paper. Black and white together provide such a wide range of value. I would like to show the specific nature of these colors. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.
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.
