Natalia Dzwigala is an emerging Sydney-based artist working in mixed-media. She is interested in revealing the beauty and harmony of the ordinary and imperfect, exploring the spatial concerns of illusion and abstraction and flatness. Dzwigala strives to grasp the beauty in the simplicity that surrounds us in our everyday lives.
Dzwigala's studio practice revolves around the process of translation. Through extracting shapes and objects from their physical atmosphere and bringing them into the studio, their meaning is translated by introducing them into a new context to create a new image. As a result, the found images and objects become less about their materiality and origins and more about being a database of images. This forms a new language to forge a connection with the audience either allowing them to associate or dissociate with the art work. Consequently, Dzwigala's works suggests an ephemeral reality where shapes hover in space between something transient and something physical.
