“Weaving Light and Space”
Multidisciplinary Art exhibition by Beata Kozlowska and David Moraton
Thistle Hall Gallery, Wellington 5th -11th December 2016
PV: Mon 6-9 pm
“Weaving Light and Space” is a first New Zealand based collaborative art exhibition by two visual artists with artistic careers in the UK: Beata Kozlowska and David Moraton.
The exhibition showcases their recent art works made in Wellington. Lines, strings and light are recurrent elements and main motifs of both artists’ installations, paintings, drawings and videos. Wherever placed three-dimensionally or represented on a bi-dimensional surface, these lines connect each other in weaving structures, mapping the space that they live in, creating complex organic forms and casting lights and shadows. Both artists find commonality in using lines and light to evoke the transcendental through abstract images, which constitute an integral part of their visual languages.
Theatre of colour and movement, is a collaborative project made in Toi Poneke Art Centre betweeen David Moraton and I. We are two artists who collaborate and join commonalities in our practices. Our collaboration revolves around the concept of interdependence as we are showing how two artists can fully blend and interrelate to create a combined artwork.
Hidden Stories, art project in Toi Poneke, Wellington NZ is a project exploring the idea of connectivity and freedom of associations. Being on the other site of the Hemisphere, made me inspired to develop further experimentation with line and integrating cut-outs painted drawing. Cut-outs are essential element of the installation and they have no fixed place on the imaginary map of the inhabited space of the studio . The geography of the mind, in a way referring back to my early series of work Mental Geography ( London, Studio Voltaire), is an attempt to disperse any possible compositional frame and open a performing space, where the presence come about.
I am delighted to announce that I was selected to participate as a solo panel Artist during the NZ Art Show, one of the largest, Affordable Art Fairs in New Zealand.
I will be showing my newest series of work on paper and also some of my previous work made in London.
I am hoping to meet some interesting people and art lovers here on the new land, in Wellington, one of the most exciting artistically capital in this part of the world.

I am in Finland with my artistic collaborator, who actually happens to be my husband as well one of the greatest blessings in my life. The art residency is held in Arteles Creative Centre, situated about 70 km away from Tampere. We, along with another 9 artists invited to the residency programme at that time, are creating as a response to Nature and the mystic landscape in a completely remote space, with a limited access to internet and urban areas. We are looking forward to seeing Northern Lights. We will also possibly be able to open further collaborations with artists, and travel. After that, there are further exhibitions, artistic collaboration in London and also abroad still in process which I am very much looking forward to.
Here some of my newest experiment with the light projection and shadow. Finnish Landscape surprises me with amazing long shadows, throwing on the bluish, dry snow.
The freezing cold weather ( -31 degrees Celsius) makes me feel internally hibernating and prompts to draw like frozen icicles on paper, created unexpectedly, with all the consequences of its ‘fragile stability’.
I am excited to announce that two of my sculptures from the El Dorado series from 2011, have been selected to be on loan with the Luxury apartment at Ransome’s Dock in the heart of London.
Ransome’s Dock is a collaboration with boutique firm of architects and property developers CPLD. Chrom-Art supplied paintings, photographies and sculptures for the marketing of two bespoke luxury riverside apartments in Battersea, London.
The ex- apartment of Victoria Beckham along with the view of my Sculpture El Dorado has been also published in Italian Edition of Vanity Fair Magazine.
