Description of Magdalena Abakanowicz artwork: Abakans
Magdalena Abakanowicz was born in 1930 in Falenty near Warsaw, where she lived and worked all throughout her years. She is one of Polan ’s most renowned artist, and well known for her works in the use of textiles. She studied at the Warsaw Academy of Fine arts, and Magdalena Abakanowicz paintings interest grew as she started her hands here producing tactless results on Canvas and cardboard.
One of her first major independent work was the “Abakans’, it was based on using textile as a medium to make the art. As an artist, her keen interest has always been with the texture of matter, mainly with the organic nature of her medium of choice. The work of Abakans was shocking as was made with multiple organic nature along with dyed sisal fibre. This work shad been drooped from the ceiling, wrapped as unidentified monsters in a canvas cloth. The traditions of flat surfaces of decorative were broken by the artist.
Abakans was one such work admired for the artist consistency and ingenuity inspite of its criticism, and got its way into International Museums. At the 1964 International Biennial Tapestry, the work was highly praised and delighted many viewers and crutics thereby earning her gold medal at the 1967 Sao Paulo Biennial.
Her work shows the approach of possibilities of manipulating the medium. Though, she got an advantage of its submissiveness and softness, yet the huge circular sheets take on an animalistic form under the artist's touch.
Her later series was seen to be made from pieces of sack cloth which she sewed and stiched together, blending it with synthetic resin. A man has always been the basic reference of her work. This is reflected in her sculptural works of the 80s and 90s, where she used materials like metal, stone, clay and wood. She was more fond of sculptural works, Magdalena Abakanowicz paintings were only done during her time when she was at the arts institute.
