Fortunately artist Gracjana Rejmer-Canovas seems to have come up with an antidote, just in time.
Gracjana’s vibrant artwork, ‘Colour Into Liquid Air’ is taking over Habitat’s Platform space on the Kings Road in London this February and March. The Slade School of Fine Art graduate has been invited by Habitat to transform its white gallery space into a sea of colour.
Citing her influences as the American Abstract Expressionists and the Colour Field Painters, Gracjana will display her work as an cohesive whole that can be separated into an array of canvases of different shapes and sizes, each offering up its own intrinsic splash of life.
For the project, Gracjana will dye linen and cotton canvases with natural pigments and then layer on acrylics and oil paints. Sounds satisfying, no?
“The result will be walls and floors awash with paintings, and a complete interior world of colour,” says the curator of Platform, Holly Wood. “Her palette of materials and references take you on a journey and remind you of brighter days and faraway trips.”
The boldness of the art on show could be just the thing to get you through till spring.
Rejmer-Canovas’ ‘Colour Into Liquid Air’ at Platform will run until 23 March 2014 and is supported by the Polish Cultural Institute, London. A video of the making process in the space will be shown in the space on loop. Opening times: 10am-6pm weekdays 9:30-6pm Saturday 12-6pm Sunday. The exhibition is FREE to attend.
