Gabriela Pelczarska


“My work encourages an innately humorous response, alongside a sense of uneasy curiosity provoked by balancing juxtaposing ideas of industry and play. I am continuously drawn to exploring balance in sculpture, making manifest the interaction between forces such as acceleration, friction, surface tension, and gravity.” - Gabriela Pelczarska

Gabriela creates contemporary sculpture with industrial materials, dismantling their intended purposes by exploring their performative qualities through abstract compositions. 
Her work encourages an innately humorous response - as we observe, we are left with a sense of unease and curiosity. We witness a delicate irony between our expectations of the industrial and its playful manifestation. Exploring suggestion and movement within sculpture, Gabriela unconsciously reacts to the potential collapse caused by gravity in her works.
