June 8 – July 3, 2012
532 Gallery Thomas Jaeckel is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings by Kasia Domanska. This is her first solo exhibition in New York.
„I look out on a summer’s day, a beach where we can daydream freely, where we look at the sky and we notice more than we do in everyday life. Everything seems easy, light and pleasant. We contemplate.“
The Artists’ works speak of the affirmation of life and it’s fleeting beauty: the sunshine, sparkling bright light bringing out the color intensity, suggesting thoughts of the eternal but often forgotten union between man and nature.
With fairy-tale like colors contrasting and blending into one another, the artist creates a work of purity and balance which does not give rise to worry or confusion, but peace and calm. The compositions give us moments of silence and stillness while transforming her pictures into living forms, pulsating with vital energy, life-giving, like a salty summer breeze, the sound of waves crushing on to the beach, a place where everything is go with the flow, forgetting schedules, rushing and stress, uniquely capturing reality at its most fleeting and temporary. The force and the power in her work is the light, it plays a decisive role in the theme as do the mood and balanced composition. It is brightness, joy, day and life, creating an idyllic climate.
The affirmation of nature and life becomes the background for a symbolic celebration of emotions, moods and reflections. Behind the literal meaning there is another, hidden meaning, which the artist allows to speak freely. Her paintings are testaments to a passion for beauty in all its forms, from the sublime to the everyday. Get ready for an endless summer.
