Swedish born abstract painter Ylva Kunze is returning to the contemporary gallery space at C99 Art Projectwith Sunbreak : Between the Poles Part 2. Following the compelling Part 1 shown last year in East London.
Kunze exhibits in both London and Stockholm and her work was celebrated with a major solo exhibition at the Nässjö Konsthall, Småland to the South of Sweden. A rural area, scattered with lakes and wild woodlands, Småland is also the location of Kunze’s childhood and her “torp”, her traditional summer cottage.
Kunze will be showing work where she is exploring the tension between the two polarities. Dynamic movements on the large canvases are inviting you into the woodland of her native Småland. Inspired by the landscape she knows so well, Kunze’s paintings capture fleeting glimpses of light, air and movement between the birches and tall pines or on the ever-shifting surface of the water. For Kunze these are mystical spaces that speak of earthly polarities, of fragility and strength, near and far, black and white. It is what lies between these opposites that is significant, as it is here that life’s energy actually lies: in the tension between the benign and malign, nature and intellect, chance and control, the rooted and the restless.
Reminding you of photographic snapshots, Kunze’s paintings capture forever the moment of a millisecond.
