NEW WORKS & NEW ARTISTS
Woolff Gallery has gathered a wonderful selection of artworks shipped in from various different countries to present this exhibition of new work. With brand new works from our already established Polish artist Anna Kruhelska, and showcasing the Slovakian born, Irish artist Miriam Fitzgerald-Juskova's work in London for the first time. We are also introducing Maryam Nass's peaceful works, Nass was born and raised in Bahrain.
We are thrilled to present an extraordinary new set of works from Polish artist Anna Kruhelska.
Having shown Anna's beautiful sculptural relief paperwork for the past few years we are familiar with the skill and precision within her practice, and her latest colour works (made from spray painted, cut wood) are equally as magnificent. The shape and colour of these pieces alters and fades as you move past the work. Executed with the same accuracy and rigour as her paper pieces, these new works are truly outstanding. We also have a new set of the paper works, which yet again demonstrate an unrivalled sense of perfection and subtle beauty.
Miriam Fitzgerald Juskova is a visual artist originally from Slovakia, living in Ireland over 15 years, creating three-dimensional paper artwork.
Miriam graduated as a Furniture Designer and was always inspired by geometry and mathematics, subjects which run strongly in her family, with her mother and sister who both worked as maths teachers. Miriam’s work, also known as Paper On Edge, is based on an old traditional technique of paper quilling. By combining this with her passion for mathematics and geometry, she introduces a whole new visual art language.
Each piece is based on a specific mathematical relationship, symmetry or sequence, and usually based on basic platonic shapes. To create each finished artwork she spends hours designing, cutting, folding and glueing paper, in order to achieve the required depth and movement. She approaches the process with a mixture of curiosity and precision. Some pieces are created intuitively, while others are pre-designed with every single cut carefully measured. Colours and textures are architectonically brought alive, fusing mathematics and art together.
Born and raised in Bahrain, Maryam Abdulla Nass received her bachelor’s degree from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California where she studied International Business. She started painting on porcelain at the young age of 15 and rediscovered her abandoned love for art, in 2005. Art became a mean of achieving internal peace and a silent medium for dialogue.
Nass describes her paintings as a portrayal of her general feelings and emotions, ranging from the darkest times of despair, desolation and grief to the brightest moments of hope, bliss and elation. Her artwork is an expression of emotion and a glimpse into her inner self.
