OLIWIA BIELA

Dynamic Visions
July 8 – July 28, 2016
Reception: Thursday, July 14, 2016 6-8 PM

For Oliwia Biela, creating a painting is “completely spontaneous.” Biela’s work is abstract, created in oil and acrylic paint, and sometimes as large as five feet tall. Her aesthetic is inescapably linked with the way she creates marks: as she describes it, “with my whole body and rarely with a brush.” She applies paint to any part of her body necessary in pursuit of a specific mark, and presses that part to the canvas. Biela builds her compositions out of these impressions, which vary enormously.

The resulting works are chaotic and absorbing. Biela uses vibrant colors that clash intentionally and disruptive compositional lines. Streaks, dabs, feathers, needles, spots, smears – these fill the canvas until there is no concept of negative or positive space. Sometimes she does include a recognizable figure or face, set afloat in a sea of shapes. Recently, she has begun to utilize collage in her works using images of her own body. 

Biela was born in Zlotow, Poland and moved to Hamburg, Germany when she was six, where she continues to live today. She has exhibited in several cities in Germany and the United States.
