Can I Kick It?

‘Peak Performance Buoyancy’ Anda Kubis & Jennie Suddick, Artist collaboration

Can I Kick It?

The Robert McLaughlan Gallery

Exhibition curated by Pete Smith

February 08, 2018 – March 04, 2018

This exhibition explores the idea of remix in visual art. Although artists often collaborate with other artists, or appropriate the work of someone else, the permissive surrendering of their work to another for creative re-invention seems unusual, and kind of fun. For this project, I have invited seven artists who I deeply admire: Lyla Rye, Anda Kubis, John Kissick, Jessica Thompson, James Olley, Chief Ladybird and Paulette Phillips to choose an artist to partner with. They’ve chosen Christina La Sala, Jennie Suddick, Stu Oxley, Duncan Macdonald, Jennifer Wigmore, Mike Pszczonak, Aura and Jean-Paul Kelly. These artists traded works with each other, and aesthetically reconfigured them.

Chrominance, Newzones Gallery, October 22 – November 26, 2016

Newzones is pleased to present “Chrominance”, a solo exhibition by Anda Kubis.

Part of the new Abstraction movement in Canada, Kubis continues her play with colour, space and illusion. Due to the prominence of colour in her work, her research considers how a conscious engagement with aesthetics and creativity positively impact human flourishing and quality of life.

In addition to her painting practice, Kubis explores new media through a digital process that creates the foundation from which this new body of oil paintings and digital prints are produced. In finished form, the digital paintings exist beyond the screen where they are entirely informed by the digital software, chroma and layers, which modelled their creation. Although inspired by a digital source, the colour is material and substantial. The luminance – the glow within – is created through Kubis’ intentional play on hue and value perception. Colour is a positive means of aesthetic expression through mixing new and traditional approaches to image making.

New needs need new techniques. The modern artists have found new ways and new means to make their statements. It seems to me that the modern painter cannot express this age in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture. Each age finds its own techniques

Jackson Pollock, 1950

The approach to abstraction in visual art has covered a lot of ground, from the minimal to the lyrically expressive. The times an artist inhabits can provide a language for their art making. Anda Kubis and Eric Louie provide two examples for our digital age; Kubis with her utilization of paint programs and computer technology to create painterly effects on paper; and Louie, whose use of planes, lines, textures and layering, reflect the influence of ubiquitous rendering and graphic programs that influence our image making, and which Louie absorbs, filters and returns to the canvas in his own personal style.
