Expressionist linocut printmaking of a figure deep in thought. His face dictated but also obscured by the quick black line work. Natalia describes the creation process of this piece as "the essence of up-to-now actions, attempts taken and experiments with the matter." She used a technique she describes as 'automatic drawing' where vigorous lines make up the face. "The black starts to dominate in the work, and the current passion of the empty and untouched space is put slowly aside." Printed by hand on Velin d'Arches paper using Charbonnel ink.
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.
