Aleksandra Niemczyk is an abstract painter living and working between Oslo and London. She uses mixed media techniques to create non-fgurative paintings of vibrant intensity and colour.
With respect for the great non-fgurative modernists of the past, and uncompromising dedication to abstract expressionism based on “organic geometry” and colour theory, Niemczyk paints sensual but complex aesthetic colour compositions in carefully applied proportions.
In practice, Niemczyk deconstructs forms and images from her immediate landscape into abstract elements and reconfgures them in balanced constellations, evoking an impression or hue of her subjects rather than a narrative description. Her compositions expand from the fatness of the canvas towards relief, building a sense of tactility through extended experimentation with textile and application: silk, cotton, paper, thick oil or acrylic paint, asphalt, or gold leaf.
Niemczyk’s latest puzzle-like series of paintings, “Daifuku,” is a response to an artist residency in Tokyo, Japan (2016) where she studied and absorbed traditional Japanese techniques of painting, printing, and patching on textiles.
Niemczyk’s formal training includes an MA in Fine Arts (Painting and Lithography) and MA in Film Directing from Béla Tarr’s radical flm.factory program in Sarajevo. She exhibits internationally and her works feature in many private and public art collections, among them Focus Bank and Louis Vuitton Art Collection in Oslo, Norway.
