On the eve of her new solo present, Deep-Rooted, on view at Setareh in Berlin later this month, we requested London-based Ania Hobson in regards to the works within the new present and shift’s in perspective she has had over the previous couple of exhibitions.
Because the gallery notes, having distinguished herself along with her enigmatic and expressive figures, in a particular graphic model, Hobson continues to push her emotive painterv results to understand deeper emotive depth. On this new collection of work, the pure panorama performs an more and more essential function within the composition. Though the highly effective characters that she portrays stay the focus, the emphasis grows in direction of their environment. Experimenting with textures, thick and skinny areas for a brand new palette which is evolving new results. This growth presents the artist the opportunity of experimenting with the potential of texture itself, mixing skinny layers of oil paint with the thick and voluminous brushstrokes which might be acquainted in Hobson’s work.
“With this new collection of work I’m wanting on the interconnectivity’s between people and nature and the way it adjustments our feelings and behavior and evolutionary psychology,” Hobson instructed Juxtapoz. “How a few of our environment have change into fears that people have created and may then intertwine with our goals that symbolize our true emotions, struggles inside ourselves. Being chased by wolves was a standard dream that I exploit to have, within the dream it was the worry of being chased by wolves however quickly realised it was solely me working away from my anxieties and the wolves weren’t a menace however one thing that people have created. We additionally depend on the outside for our wellbeing to be able to join with ourselves once more. Portray this new collection of work feels private and one thing that’s actually near me and who I’m.”
