‘Between Land & Sea’ Aga Kubish solo exhibition
March 3 @ 11:00 am - April 4 @ 5:00 pm
We are excited to announce Aga Kubish’s first solo exhibition.
Opening Thursday the 3rd of March, with a private view to be held in the evening from 6:30-8:30.
Since first joining our group of gallery artists in early 2020 we have watched Aga’s creativity flourish and her work is going from strength to strength. She is a Fine Artist, Printmaker and Illustrator, dedicating herself to botanical, nautical and architectonic themes. With a design background her illustrations have quite a graphic style, with clean lines and muted colours. Her approach is traditional, using the
style of old engravings and dotwork as well as the hatching technique. Aga has listed some of her artistic influences as
Albrecht Durer, Katsushika Hokusai and Alphonse Mucha. Flora and Fauna feature prominently and her love for nature is very evident. Her pictures sometimes have a quirky or humerous edge, as is seen in ‘woman’s brain’ or ‘lady with leaves’. Over
the past few years Aga has created a unique and extremely recognisable style.
After discovering printmaking in March 2021, Aga was immediately drawn to linocut prints. The technique allows her to
mix her carving, design, drawing and graphic skills all into one medium.
“I have always focused on details… tiny lines, dots and very detailed textures, those are the most important elements
of my style. I soon realised that to show them all in linocut printmaking I had to change the scale of my artworks.”
Toward the end of 2021 Aga started to move into creating larger linocut prints. Her first large work Giant Octopus is a
real statement of intent from this exciting and prolific Artist.
“Giant Octopus, as the very first of my large lino prints, was made without a background. I wanted to focus on the
octopus’s body, shades and engraved lines. Giant Octopus has been designed like a Japanese brush painting. I gave her
spontaneous lines, to show her flow in open space.”
Aga has continued to work on large linocut pieces. The Between Land & Sea exhibition shall be the first time this new
collection of works will be shown together. The exhibition will include a variety of linocut prints as well as ink and watercolour originals.
On Saturday 26th March from 12-4pm Aga will be demonstrating the process of her larger than life linocut printing in
the gallery workshop space. This will be a great opportunity to meet the Artist and learn about her creative practice.
