I’etrangere Gallery..>>- Lines and Thoughts – refers to the fluidity and rhythms that characterise the pictorial language and immediacy of Franciszka Themerson’s approach to both paper and canvas. Embedded within this title, however, is a gesture towards the artistic challenge of finding one’s own particular visual language, of finding a seamless passage between interior thought and exterior execution. As Themerson described in her 1957 talk, ‘Bi-Abstract Pictures’, which remains the most important commentary by the artist on her own practice, the plight lay in the search for a language that was able to define the world around her.
