Solo Exhibition by Ania Gola-Kumor
Foundations + Fine Art faculty member Ania Gola-Kumor’s exhibition, Moving Paint II, will be on display at the Sondra Phillips Gallery from October 27 to December 2. The opening reception will be held from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2017.
Her 2013 solo exhibition Moving Paint was awarded Best Gallery Show – Solo by Denver Westword. Michael Paglia wrote, “Her painterly technique is breathtaking, with lots of overpainting in broken passages across the picture that is emphasized by a sense for drawing, as though Gola-Kumor had scribbled across the canvases and then carefully filled in the resulting automatist forms with layer upon layer of pigment — which is precisely what she did. The automatism links her to abstract expressionism, while the meditative followup makes her approach distinctly different. Gola-Kumor’s palettes are remarkable and unerring in their elegant balance. The paintings in this group are closely associated formally, but not in terms of their colors, which, though defined by a limited range within each piece, encompass the entire spectrum of color across the series. Some are filled with hot, toned-up reds and oranges, while others are in cool, recessive shades of creams and greens; all are untitled.”
