Zuzanna Salamon


RGU Art and Heritage 2020 Purchase Award Nominee

bp Fine Art Award Nominee

Zuzanna Salamon’s current studio practice focuses on depicting trees that have been moved and transplanted elsewhere which symbolises her dislocation from home and living in a foreign country. The reality of her works fall between the boundary of the real and imaginary world and fuses elements from both. This creates a poetic sensibility that often feels dreamlike.

The metaphors and symbols that appear in Salamon’s works come from her own experience of longing for a homeland and Slavic culture which consists of rituals involving worshipping the elemental grandeur of nature. Therefore, a symbolism of trees, cut roots, and fallen leaves often appear in her work as a repeatable concept that reflects on human life and emotions. Because of its immediacy, mark-making, and tonality, charcoal is currently Salamon’s primary medium, which she uses to build up large-scale drawings
