For her vibrant and dynamic works Malwina Puszcz draws inspiration from the artistic movement of geometric abstraction, specifically hard-edge painting established at the turn of the 1950s and 60s. She looks to the artists who rebelled and created their own, impersonal painting style, abandoning content in favor of form.

Puszcz is not interested in high flown and complex interpretations of her work. She rather wants to share her sensitivity than a message that can be expressed in words. To do so, she employs an extraordinary purity of form and timbre whose interplay seems to draw the viewer in and make the eye wander endlessly through a world of energetic shapes and vibrant color variations.

‘’The colour, the timbre is what fascinates me the most and plays a key role in my paintings. Searching for it, mixing, contrasting and matching them is like an adventure for me. I am fascinated by the interplay of the colors on the canvas; the red looks one way when it’s placed near green or blue, whereas it gives a different impression when it's located next to orange. Each of my paintings is unique, I never use the same composition or timbre. The range of colours is so broad that the opportunities to develop my artistic vision are practically endless.’’

The artist currently lives and works in Gdańsk, Poland.
