Ida Ivanka Kubler
'The birth of an idea'

22nd Nov 2013 - 4th Jan 2014

The Westbourne Grove Church Artspace is delighted to welcome back Ida Ivanka Kubler for another solo show.

For this exhibition Ida will present new artwork pieces from her successful series "The Birth of an Idea". These artworks are rectangular painted canvases with sculptured, colored and arranged silk cocoons. The resulting half-object paintings are kaleidoscopic. Tension is created by the silk cocoon groupings and contrasting colors. The repetition in her artwork is at once geometric and ordered but is also subversive in its use of color. The overall effect is one that the viewer finds instantly known, visceral and transcendent or what the artist calls "imaginative touch".

The artist says "My art introduces the viewer to the passions of tactile experiences, which I feel when I am producing those artworks". "The Birth of an Idea" series has been recognised by the Behring Institute for Medical Research as having a positive influence on health. The artwork is deemed to promote relaxation in the viewer.

Ida Ivanka Kubler is living and creating in London. She has an international reputation and has worked worldwide including Germany, France, Bulgaria, Norway, USA and UK. She has a number of international collectors. Ida has exhibited in Germany, the Netherlands, London and New York. Her last solo show was at the Chance Gallery Chelsea London.
