Movement Study 5 by Karina Bania
12" x 9"
My paintings explore the abstract geographies that we navigate in our lives. Each painting begins as a field of space from which an environment arises. As the space is acted upon, a conversation ensues between emptiness and fullness, stillness and movement, objects seen and energy felt. The compositions that emerge are built from these contrasting forces which together, create a sense of place and balance.
Geometric shapes of color live in harmony with abstract washes of dye. Built up layers of depth grace empty fields of raw, untouched canvas. Mistakes are made, scratched out and left unhidden. These traces are notions of connection.
