Visual artist and writer Kamila Sipika, in her practice focuses on anthropology research, painting, writing, and 3d rendering. Through her works, she interacts with visual phenomena by noticing subtle changes challenging our positions within society. She centers on techniques that could show nature with its technological impact. Abstraction for her creates a hybrid between the organic and artificial world. She professes an interest in the potential of redefining painting’s ability to express sensorial observations.
By staring and withholding the gaze into the maxed-out brightness of a screen or sun shape, the surrounding immediately becomes darker. And when closing the eyes, an optical echo of the screen remains visible. Focused on the afterimage that arises from the residual activity, the retaining light after viewing the source disappears. Kamila Sipika’s paintings are memories of such situations, generated images. And as the painting medium is flattened, reproduced, edited, and distributed across multiple systems and devices, the blur finds its metaphorical dimension. The work is dated 2021.
It is possible to organize a private viewing.
