Oosterbaan’s process-oriented paintings map kinetic passage and investigate Icelandic landscape’s theatre of space. As meditations on cinematic light, her work engages with the ephemeral space of twilight; those seconds which exist in the liminal spaces between the sky and the earth.
The drawings of Anda Dubinskis are similar in their generation as they start with a single decorative element and evolve into a complicated response to the initial source. Both fuse space, light and air to create something elusive – a rustle, a breathe, the suggestion of something passing.
