Anya Tish Gallery presents Veronica Ibargüengoitia: "Fractured Light" & Paweł Dutkiewicz: "Afterimage" opening day
Anya Tish Gallery will present Mexico City-born, Houston-based artist Veronica Ibargüengoitia in her inaugural solo exhibition with the gallery, "Fractured Light." Sharing the gallery space with Ibargüengoitia is Polish painter Paweł Dutkiewicz with four new paintings from his ongoing series "Afterimage."
Ibargüengoitia works in oil on canvas in both two and three dimensional formats. Her paintings and objects are inspired by photographs of windows she collects from around the globe, and considers as views from a private space to the outside world. By reducing the image to lines and angles the artists creates images of architectural spaces that connect the physical world to the nonphysical.
Dutkiewicz continues to strip away all figurative representation, communicating atmospheric light through the application and composition of color. Layers of beeswax and paint saturate each canvas to create nuances of tone that emerge as ethereal, floating spaces of color. The subtle shift of color in the palate of each work creates a quiet luminosity that is akin to an afterimage.
