Beata Blaszczok - Fine Art Student
My name is Beata Blaszczok. I am a fine art student completing my Bachelors Degree this year in Technological University Dublin. My art practice is based on mixed media and the artworks that I decided to share with you are either work in progress, my notes, research, or the final products from college, past exhibitions or commissions.
Beata Blaszczok was born in the south part of Poland in 1996 close to Polish Tatry, giving her the love for the natural world that’s central to her art practice. Her works are depiction of the artistic concern of protecting the environment through recycling, the complex systems found within the natural world and through investigation of Polish/Irish wild flora through photography and film making.
Other works include the form of a large-scale graphic illustrations that adds up to a site-specific installation, that is a combination of the wall drawing using pen and extended drawing using thread. It is a combination of different forms of natural, man-made system and pattern, motorway/highway systems, repetitive patterns and sequences that occur in nature and finally language. It explores how a number of man-made and natural systems can co-exist in a single artwork.
Her recent work is a combination of a number of scientific and social characteristics as a means to discuss our current relationship with nature from an image making perspective and as an ecological imperative. Merging a number of materials and art making strategies. These include drawing photography and film making.
