Breath of nature closed in subtle frames. The story of a secret forest life.

Małgorzata Kalinowska - paintings and jewellery.
In this exhibition Kalinowska is showing a series of paintings and sculptures

inspired by nature. Her paintings depict over-scaled lichens and mosses - they become a world of mysterious and mystical colours and shapes. Unrecognizable at first, as we are not used to seeing these magnified image and large scale silhouettes. Some of the paintings appear very realistic whilst some other become completely abstract. They explore organic architecture and surface emanating feelings of peace and depth.

Mosses and lichens are organisms growing below our feet, often unnoticed and overlooked. They are overgrown old died trees, boughs and remnants of fauna and flora. They are the allegory of the new beginnings. It can remind us that sometimes changing our perspective can give us a totally different point of view.

With the small pieces of sculpture Kaniowska intends to preserve real parts of the forest. Her small pieces of a jewellery containing a miniature forest aims to keep their nature effect close to us.


The Artist

Małgorzata Kalinowska is a young cross-disciplinary artist. Nature is her main inspiration. She explores the world of shapes, colours, and depth to look for similarities between all leaving creatures. She believes there are some common divine elements and tries to capture this ephemeral sense in her paintings. Not afraid of using wide brush strokes or paint spills working on making imperfection as a form of expression with a human emotional touch.

She was born in 1989 in Poland. In 2009 she graduated from Art School in Supraśl (Poland) and continued her education at the Gdańsk Academy of Fine Arts. She gained Masters in Painting and BA (Hones) in Graphic Design. While at university she participated in many exhibitions and artistic projects such as the international project ‘Art Hot Pot in Sopot’ - Young Artists Exhibition in Great Armory (Gdańsk) and the exhibition ‘Afterimages’ at the National Art Gallery (Sopot).
Currently, she lives and works in London.
