Solo Exhibition 21.08 – 16.10

The solo exhibition of mine will take place in a vibrant space of The Jerusalem Tavern in the middle of buzzy Clerkenwell. I will present a mix of Giclee prints and Original paintings on paper looking to engage new audience in this lively environment.

As it’s a public space, there will be no private view as such, but I’m planning to be there a few times during the show.

Open: 21.08 – 16.10 weekdays 11am-11pm

55 Britton St, Clerkenwell, London EC1M 5UQ

“In her artistic practice, Gosia Poraj processes her memories and experiences while she accepts the fading of others. Philosophical explorations of the mechanisms of memory and dreams have influenced artist’s work on many levels; just as dreams form illogical and scattered visions, her paintings mirror this sense of the surreal. Gosia, being very attached to paper as her preferred material, has developed a very original technique using inks, that allows blending colours to create a sense of depth within an abstract scene. Her bright-coloured paintings tend to appear collage-like, as if shown from different angles and dimensions, without a distinct perspective.”

Edge of Ordinary 5 exhibition

Gosia Poraj Edge of Ordinary, Espacio gallery London

I have an utmost pleasure to invite you all to my next exhibition with our quirky bunch of artists. We’ll be showing our 2 and 3D work in Espacio Gallery in Shoreditch starting on the 30th of August.

The private view is on the 1st September so there will be wine and nibbles (just in case art is not convincing enough). Hope to see all you faces there.

The show is a part of Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays so it will be a late night.

In Translation

Thank you all for joining me at the private view and on other days at Espacio Gallery. It’s been a lot of fun.

London Exhibition ‘In Translation’

In beginning of April I will be taking part in group exhibition “In Translation”. All 10 artists exhibiting are Members of Espacio Gallery that is based in Shoreditch (London).

Everyone is welcome to attend private view on the 7th April 6-9 pm. Please come and say ‘hello’.

The exhibition will last 6 days so if you’re unable to join us on the 7th feel free to pop in any time between 5-10 April during opening hours:

Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat 1-7pm, Thur 4-9pm, Sun 1-5pm

In Translation is about the way that we create new languages, in order to interpret and convey our responses to the world. Art can be a way of making sense of our environment and of lived experience. It is as if the raw material of life needs to be translated - given a kind or order, or meaning, in order to make it liveable. This is Culture, and this is why art is at the root of culture. It offers us a way of looking, understanding and being in the world.

Beyond this, translation is a way of reaching out. Translations bring people together. They put us on the same page. Meaning is made meaningful when it is acknowledged by others. Through translations in art, our visions become powerful. They can bring about change.

In Translation brings together a group of artists from around the world. Whether they are inspired by their environments, by myths and legends, or by ideas and emotions, each artist’s work is underpinned by the need to translate experience into something visual and share-able. We are offered new perspectives, or understandings, and we are invited to translate their translations for ourselves.

Featured on Rise Art

As from a couple of days I have been featured on Rise Art Online gallery.

Here is an endorsement from Kathryn Roberts.

Curator Kathryn Roberts says:

“Poraj uses a contemporary pallet and minimalist shapes to create the illusion of collage within her paintings thereby manipulating the viewer’s perspective of abstract concepts or subjects.”
