Gosia Wlodarczak

1959 | born Poland, lives melbourne

Born in Poland, and living in Melbourne, Gosia Wlodarczak interprets her immediate surroundings through the language of drawing. Wlodarczak’s practice is cross-disciplinary, extending towards performance, interactive situations, installation, sound, photo and moving-collage; she refers to it as trans-disciplinary drawing. Her works form rich linear tapestries that archive the artist’s fleeting perceptions. Tracing and re-tracing, she historicises the immediate moment through a pentimenti of mark-marking.

Her work is represented in collections including: National Gallery of Australia; National Gallery of Victoria; Art Gallery of New South Wales; Art Gallery of South Australia; Art Gallery of Western Australia; Queensland Art Gallery /Gallery of Modern Art; Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art; Artbank; Deakin University; Edith Cowan University; Murdoch University; Poznan Academy of Fine Arts; Western Washington University.
