Alicja Kozłowska is a textile artist from Poland.

” I draw inspiration from the reality that surrounds me, consumerism and everyday objects. I create in the aesthetics of Pop Art.

“In my works I use a needle, like a brush. I combine various materials from labels, newspapers, foils, to felt and fabric. I create from large format “embroidered pictures” to miniature patches.

“I would like to popularise and change the perception of fabric, which can also become a work of art. Every work requires commitment and patience from me, it is unique, created spontaneously without a specific pattern and in a fit of inspiration. Working with material is my passion.

“I try to make each of my paintings unique and stimulate the viewer’s imagination.”

I always like the idea of immortalising the mundane and using stitch to capture ordinary moments; I’m reminded of Susie Vickery and Gillian Bates whose work has a similar intent. Alicja’s focus on everyday objects provides an opportunity for us to rethink these items we take for granted.
