Anda Kubis: Lontano
Newzones Gallery of Contemporary Art, Calgary, AB - Nov 26, 2020 – Jan 9, 2021
Employing bands of luminous colour, abstractionist Anda Kubis evokes an extended stay in Italy last fall, before her return to Calgary and immersion in a flattened and constricted way of life dictated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Kubis uses her paintings to reclaim sensory memories of light and atmospheric effects witnessed in Florence, Venice, Modena and Rome. As well, her works recall the prolonged contemplation of Renaissance art and architecture.
