MARIA BARTUSZOVÁ

BORN
LIVES&WORKS
1936, Praga, Czechoslovakia (present-day Czech Republic)
1996, Ko?ice, Slovakia

A Slovak artist known for abstract sculptures made of white plaster, traditionally a “preparatory” material, which therefore gives the work a sense of precariousness, incompleteness and fragility. Using rubber balloons to shape the plaster, she creates unique and irresistible organic shapes reminiscent of raindrops, seeds, eggs, sometimes hinting at the human body that, since the eighties, she used to photograph outdoors to emphasize its close affinity with nature. Her works are at the Centre Pompidou, the Slovak National Gallery and the Tate Modern in London.
