Reception: Saturday, April 22nd, 2:00pm
April 22nd to May 18th
Just in time for spring, Art Placement is pleased to feature bright and colorful abstract works by Steph Krawchuk. Well known for her stylized cityscapes, portraits, and still-life paintings, Krawchuk’s recent turn towards all-out abstraction is a bit of a departure. Though her work has always played with the fundamental elements of line, shape, and colour, these recent works are now liberated from any recognizable subject matter or representational constraint. Despite the lack of identifiable subjects, Krawchuk does continue to draw inspiration from her immediate environment, distilling her impressions into abstract compositions, rather than literal translations. Working and re-working each canvas in the studio, Krawchuk’s paint accumulates in luscious, textural surfaces, with clean, precise colour. Defying any strict stylistic lineage, her paintings are consistently fresh and unexpected.
