Here a person can find a momentary rest and pause. A little break while trying to regain their breath and strength. In order to continue.
Beata’s artistic practice explores various intersections between painting, sculpture and architecture. Neither painting, nor sculpture, her installations are conceptual elaborations upon colour, space and form. Abstract, direct and temporal, her work responds to site, engaging with the architectonics of exhibiting spaces and topographies of locations.
