Drawing is at the heart of Gosia Wlodarczak’s practice. She doesn’t work in a studio. Instead her drawings happen in real time in the exhibition space documenting the present moment as she witnesses it.
"The feeling of existing; the eye is seeing, the hand is drawing, brain processing and awareness of being in the moment, my body responding, something pulling my attention, accumulation of shapes … The drawing responds to my understanding of the present. Converting the living energy from that moment in time to the line. This is the rule I use in all of my work. My process is like a language, my alphabet if you like. I am talking about something using my own alphabet – using drawing as a language to address, to research, to communicate."
Gosia Wlodarczak’s cross-disciplinary drawing practice has extended into performance, installation, sound and film. Her work is motivated by a fascination with the mind’s relationship with the outside world conducted through the senses. Using only what she sees around her, she uses the drawn line as a materialisation of being present in the world and in a moment. She works in private and public spaces rather than an artist’s studio, interacting with the stimuli of the outside world and ordinary life, translating her ‘living energy into the drawn line’.
