Anda Kubis North
July 2012 - September 2012
About the exhibition:
North is a direction, a location and a sensibility. These paintings celebrate this time of year - when northern light stays with us longest. It is a time of possibility and leisure.
Anda Kubis' work is strongly influenced by the tradition of Northern European painting. These paintings allude to an expansive scale and a quiet solitude. She uses colour to slow the eye with shifting perceptual relationships. Emerging from Modernist ideals, her paintings revel in equivocality. The works hover between: abstraction and representation; materiality and the ephemeral; ideas and emotion.
