"Contemporary art mixing abstraction with the representational, sometimes boldly expressive other times channeling a quieter energy."
Emilia Dubicki is primarily an abstract painter. Nature and man made structures figure in her work, as does light and dark. Interested in scale, she likes to paint large. Her work is in numerous private and public collections. Emilia is represented by the Fred Giampietro Gallery, Branford, CT.
How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?
"I find that self-editing is very useful when painting. It's good to step back from a work in progress and let it sit for a while. This gives me better insight on how to resolve a painting or confirm whether the work is what I want it to be."
What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?
"Experiencing a painting is a personal thing for the viewer. There is no right or wrong interpretation of the work."
What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?
"Sometimes I will begin a painting with no idea in mind. I'll pick a couple of colors and start covering the canvas in big areas of color and through the process of painting some mental picture begins to emerge, that then triggers a memory that then suddenly calls for a form or structure in a particular color. Soon a painting begins to emerge."
