BAU-XI TORONTO: October 13-27, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 13th, 2-4PM, ARTIST IN ATTENDANCE
Commingling the materiality of paint with the digital image, Anda Kubis creates a seamless reality between disparate and even opposing methods of production. In Shimmering Mirages, a new body of large-scale digital paintings and works on paper, Kubis intentionally blurs the boundary between paint and the digital output to play with the conventions of painting and art practice in general.
Anda Kubis is a recognized Canadian abstract painter working in expanded digital, material, and traditional oil painting processes. Due to the prominence of colour in her artwork, Kubis consciously considers how the engagement with aesthetics and creativity positively affects human flourishing and quality of life. With degrees from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and York University, Kubis crosses her artistic practice with design and architecture, material exploration, and her significant teaching career. She is an Associate Professor in the Drawing and Painting program of the Faculty of Art at OCAD University. Numerous public and private collections have acquired Kubis’ work, including RBC, TD Bank, BMO, Cenovus Energy, Aimia, The Westaim Corporation, and the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development.
