JANA KAMILA MASIK at AGORA GALLERY in Chelsea
The works in Dynamic Visions seem to both challenge us to analyze their effect and invite us to immerse ourselves in their stimulating and often ingenious vision of life. Each piece appears to contain a whole world of lively possibility that bears a strong relation to what we know, yet almost transcends the understood, taking us along for the ride.
Jana Kamila Masik is a wonderfully sensitive painter whose works fall somewhere between abstract and landscape. Jana paints in acrylic with a consistent palette of light earth tones: pale yellows, taupe, grays, shadowy purples, and the occasional deep indigo or an accentuating sprightly green. She creates soft, almost pastel-like textures that allow treetops to blend into the sky and buildings to recede into a foggy night. Her grasp of atmospherics is comprehensive, and her light touch with a paintbrush leaves mystery intact on the canvas.
