Małgorzata (Gosia) Łapsa-Malawska

​略歴(Brief CV)  
Małgorzata (Gosia) Łapsa-Malawska is a Polish born artist currently based in London. Extensively travelled across South America and Asia, her practice is rooted in the 'Young Poland Movement' and informed by the simplicity and subtlety at the core of Japanese aesthetics. 
 Loosely based on the principle of ideas following the brush wherever it leads, fragments of memories are condensed into semi abstract landscapes, with figures reduced to silhouettes and shadows. Using a pared down palette fading from Payne's grey to white allow the artist's conscience to disappear into the horizon while at the same time conjuring a universal subconscience. 
The fleetingness of time, the inevitability of transience, are encapsulated in textures and marks; these may even be further reduced by keeping the process of stretching the canvas till last as a final homage to the beauty that lies in imperfection and deterioration.
