New Paintings by Felix_Akulw 2018-2020
"Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow."
An exhibition of new paintings by Felix_Akulw, who is equally well known under his real name of Andrew Wluka.
"My paintings have no obvious, ( though sometimes tacit,) references to the empirical world of sensate experience.
Rather they employ the languages and grammar of line, shape, form, colour, tone, mark-making and gesture to create individual and specific outcomes.
My working process is essentially an intuitive and organic improvisation where formal elements create ever changing dialogues between themselves and myself which on a good day can lead to exciting and unanticipated resolutions - we won't mention the bad days!
Someone once remarked that "Colours are promiscuous, they get infected by their neighbours" and the same is true of the relationships between other formal elements. So for as long as these relationships within the act of painting continue to ask questions of me and of themselves then the process continues. Hopefully this will continue to provide further interesting creative and intuitive responses in a variety of media."
