Maja Sikorska

Based in Gothenburg, Sweden


I work primarily with biomorphic forms in drawing and sculpture. For me, biomorphic art opens up a space between the known and the unknown - where the possible lives.

By combining and rethinking organic forms and materials, I want to speak to the imaginative part of the mind, whilst engaging with the body. I try to mimic materials and things that we are familiar with in a tactile way; voluptuous bodily forms, fragile and net-like skeletons of leaves, folds and draping similar to fabric, and lines that grow out like hair or veins - then twist like a root. Sharp edges and soft curves.

Many of my drawings are made with permanent pens, where I slowly build an image with thousands of thin lines. Once drawn, a line cannot be erased; only when adding and rethinking can the image move forward.
