Anda Kubis | Shimmering Mirages
October 13-27, 2018
340 Dundas St West, Toronto
Opening reception: Saturday, October 13, 2-4 pm

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. Through modulated colour, transparent layers, and indistinguishable brushwork, she provokes associations to beauty and the sublime. The paintings assert a visionary space that reflects our current existence – where we function between virtual and concrete experience daily, often without noticing. By illusionistically blending the handmade into the digitally created image, Kubis reflects upon the nature of our contemporary tools to highlight the human potential within them.

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 the Associate Dean of Outreach and Innovation in 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.
