Jozef Bajus

The work of Jozef Bajus has always utilized media whose shared material aspect is flexibility. This has predominantly centered around various kinds of fabric and paper that are invariably manipulated through a variety of physical approaches—in particular, cutting and folding. At its hearts, Bajus' practice is using an elementary crafting process, but his treatment of this method and these materials has rarely been simplistic.
