“I like the idea of the lightness that lets you send a stone skipping over the water. The idea of not sinking, both literally and figuratively.“ This is how Natasza Niedziółka describes the title of her inaugural exhibition “Skipping Stones” in the LOGIN.


Niedziółka’s works are located at the crossroads of painting, drawing, and textile art. She uses canvases as pictorial supports for her large abstract stitchings in which her repetitive work with the material infuses these remarkable pieces with a lightness and a meditative gesture reminiscent of Marcia Hafif and Agnes Martin.


In her work Dolanji, twelve joined colored canvases capture the intensity of Niedziółka‘s perception and exploration of the Dolanji area in India. The artist chose this place of social and political unrest to stay at the Menri Monastery for a long period during which she could devote herself to this work and let it be guided by calmness and concentration. Although it does not offer a thematic interpretation on a formal level, the surface of Dolanji quietly and subtly reflects the artist‘s experience in the bright maroon red and variations of blue tones evoking associations of the monks' garbs and the sky over Menri.


Zero 1625 is one of Niedziółka’s most recent series. It draws its inspiration from the Zero group of artists based in Düsseldorf. The Zero paradigm of purist aesthetics and artistic new beginnings has been masterfully translated into oscillating images that appear to consist of fields of single, almost monochrome colors. The calculated irregularities in representation that unfold in the working process are what make the aesthetics of Niedziółka’s works so engaging and powerful.

I use embroidery thread on stretched canvas as my primary medium, the resulting artwork lays between drawing, painting and tapestry. My latest works are grounded under the name Zero, it stands for me as a zone of silence and possibilities for a new beginning. ‘Zero’ is also a recording of a moment, it visualizes the meditative process and the balancing between extreme points.
