Summer ticks by slowly at the gallery. The sun circles the garden and the display room in a wide arc, lazily flicking its long tongue.
WARSAW GALLERY WEEKEND 2022
Does a painting conceal more than it reveals? Emilia Kina examines the nature of paintings, the illusion imbedded in them, but also their physical construction. „Le soir qui tombe” is the title of a painting by the Belgian surrealist René Magritte, which has now inspired Kina to create a multi-phase painterly narrative.
Emilia Kina focuses on the margins of depiction, of what is merely a frame for the proper view, what hides it or merely appears. Her relief compositions, painting/screens captivating in their material beauty, divert attention from the digital inflation of images and messages.
