“At first glance, the figures advancing through Bielawska’s paintings resemble projections of geometric solids: the humps corresponding to elliptical orbits, the multiplied slopes and peaks to wave amplitude or self-replicating fractals. Bielawska’s starting point, however, is utterly elsewhere. Referring to her method, the artist instead speaks of emotions, of states of mind, without placing any emphasis on calculations derived from numerical sequences and combinations of proportions. The traces of this process are evident in titles that summon human experience, words generating in assemblage (un)intentional associations.”
