It is important for me to explore the appeal of reality in my work and to transform it into an adequate artistic form and technique.
As a crossover artist between painting, drawing and sculpture, Malgorzata Bujnicka developed her own identity out of tradition and modern age. Her work combines abstraction and concreteness in multiple ways. It is full of multi-faceted reflections and observations of mass culture’s social phenomena.
As her main means of expression, she uses the human body. Her paintings reveal dynamic figures in strong colors, showing their multi-layered and deep inner life, which opens up to the observers, drawing them inside instead of remaining secluded. The “sculptress eye” may be responsible for this effect. When painting, she perceives in a razor-sharp way what she sees and transcribes physical body traits in their complexity.
At the same time, she delves into the world of recollection and imagination. What we see and spot in the artist’s paintings is a kaleidoscope of dreams and realities. As a painter who has worked as sculptress for years, she literally chisels figures with the brush from an amorphous density of impressions that are tied together, transformed and newly assembled.
The artist makes use of a far-reaching palette of painting techniques, adding allegorical and symbolic elements to classic, realistic and unusual motifs – thus creating an artistic fabric full of unbelievable, deep and suggestive tales.
Malgorzata Bujnicka comes from Sopot, Poland. Since 1998 she has lived in Vienna, where she studied performance and sculpture under F.X Ölzant, Angela Bulloch and Monica Bonvicini at the Academy of fine Art, which she graduated with distinction. She also got scholarship at the Slade School of Fine Art in London where she studied under Prof. Phyllida Barlow.
Her artworks have been exhibited in Austria, Germany, Latvia, Poland and Italy.
