Natalia Załuska (*1984) is a Polish painter. Her paintings are reduced, multilayered images: minimalist without being Minimal Art. Załuska’s compositions manifest a complex engagement with form and materiality and evidence her particular interest in textures and the effects of colours.
About the artist
Natalia Załuska constructs her minimalist and reduced paintings by using various materials that she accurately assembles with a range of different techniques, resulting in a play of geometric forms. The fundamental form is always based on a rectangle upon which multilayered monochrome collages develop, made of canvas and cardboard, acrylic and pencil. The artist folds, tears or cuts the materials and arranges them carefully into a structure that opens up new perspectives through its broken surfaces. The lines go deeper than visible at first sight, causing layers underneath to appear. Vibrant tones of blue, red and violet burst out of deep black or white surfaces. Sometimes only a shadow draws a fragile line. Born in 1984 in Krakow, Poland, Załuska now lives and works in Warsaw. Her work is included in various collections such as the Belvedere Museum in Vienna, the National Museum in Gdansk, the Langen Foundation in Neuss and the Jorge M. Pérez Collection in Miami. Galerie Klüser has been representing the artist since 2014.
