Marta Wojtuszek works in the oldest and most analogue printmaking technique, the woodcut. The basis of her every print is a wooden board, in which the artist hand-carves shapes with a knife or chisel. She is inspired by nature, her works feature many organic and animal motifs, often captured in a highly simplified and deformed manner, with a few lines. Her works have the freshness and “naivete” of a child’s gaze, but also clearly draw from folk and Podhale art and artists of the prewar avant-garde, who used these patterns in more abstract works.
