"Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything.
Nothing is going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on’/Haruki Murakami/
the essence of impermanence; beauty that’s not obvious, moments hidden in shadows and the remnants of past experiences. Those now absent people and places; a happiness to have witnessed them, with the sadness they’re gone."

Lapsa-Malawska uses a monochrome palette, to seamlessly blend ideas within a dimension of stark simplicity and suggested form. The artist believes in fewer strokes, to achieve clarity and space to invite her audience to use their own imaginations. In her works, she explores the relationship between people and art in public space. Transience, urban loneliness and the issue of isolation and emptiness. The artist avidly watches people, observing lives that inevitably inspire her, as she transposes them and her personal experiences into the hinterlands of her imagination.
