Anda Kubis is part of the New Abstraction movement in Canada. Exploring colour, space and illusion, Anda Kubis’ paintings are strongly inspired by Modern color-field painting. Kubis uses color to reflect an entirely contemporary world – a world seen with light. Her paintings act as a place of visual contemplation, a place for the eye to meander through finely tuned chromatic relationships.

As part of the New Abstraction movement in Canada, Kubis continues her play with colour, space and illusion. Painterly and improvisational, Kubis’ work continues to capture a screen-like illumination from within the picture with light clusters and refractions across the surface of the canvas.
