Kanaria “à la recherche d’un point de contact”
This event has ended.
The exhibition features approximately 30 recent paintings created using mixed-media; oil paintings with colored pencils, as well as copper plate prints with coloring, a method she has begun to use in the past year. As Kanaria states, her works manifest the abundant love that she perceives in daily life. Various motifs emerge as her colored pencil scratches the layer of oil-paint applied to the canvas. Her motifs include human beings in intimate moments between woman and man, woman and a woman, or among a man, a woman, and another man. Fruits, cakes, adorable animals and profusely growing plants, the organic motifs are overlapping, connecting and given to life in a world that appears as an amusement park, a wonderland, or the ethereal sphere.
With a new insight that the space between objects allows a work to be in contact with another plane or environment, she leaves a space between divided parts of her painting wider than her past works, in which the parts fitted closely alongside each other. This attempt echoes the blank space that appears in her works, which suggest connections of things or events. The exhibition which Kanaria conceived under the title à la recherche d’un point de contact presents her new world view – in which the contact engenders a new relation, allowing the world to become ever stronger, as well as the contact that brings about a broader expanse of the world.
