Beneath the Surface

about Gosia

Gosia is one of those people with a lot of churning in her soul. Her art is rooted in a need to process the world, society and life’s experiences. Her creative process strives to filter out the dark, the scary and the ugly in search of innocence, beauty and spirituality. The result is a series of delicate otherworldly characters poetically personifying her deep inner emotions. They are figures that appear still, at first glance, but their gentle expressions, graceful gestures and haunting gazes reveal a storm of inward contemplation.

Born in Poland in 1982 and moved to Toronto, Canada, in 1994, Gosia constructs her minimally-hued busts from a variety of materials, including ceramic, polymer gypsum, resin, and porcelain. Her very first experiment with porcelain is included in her last solo exhibition, Beneath the Surface, at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia, and is named Imperfect as “one of those ‘happy accident’ pieces” that end up being somehow perfects: “My intention for it was completely different, but when it came out of the mold it had an indentation on the left side of the face… It made me think a lot about the world’s obsession — and my own — with perfection and what we might be missing because of it. It felt good to let go of control and for once let my art do its own thing.”
