The Muse presents 'An end of residency solo exhibition'
I see crowds of lonely people sheltered inside the cocoons of conveniences, overwhelmed by a fear of intimacy.
The Tube, a party, a street, an office, a pub, friends, a family, loved ones, strangers…
You're smiling but feeling so lonely…
Urban Loneliness is about all of us, all the busy people living in the City.
Positive and negative aspects of loneliness…Indifference or a respect for the right to be left alone?
Gosia Łapsa-Malawska is a Polish artist based in London. She is a Street Art lover and self-confessed Portobello addict (seeking help).
She works in: painting, collage, photography, poster design and lithography. In her work are visible influences of 'The Polish School of Posters' and Japanese aesthetics. She uses language, fewer strokes and a monochrome palette to achieve clarity, and to blend ideas with simplicity and suggested form.
In her works she explores the relationships between people and art in public spaces, the idea of an urban loneliness and the isolation one can experience when lost in a crowd.
