Painting is an anchor point, a space, a research area; it is such a kind of activity that allows to turn every gesture into an experience. It seems that in the case of Alicja Kubicka’s painting, the less is verbalised, the better. Her works are extremely independent – they do not need translation through language phrases, but rather an insightful look. But the first glance at them is already enough for the canvases to start talking to us, asking us questions.
The images are not invasive, they deceive a little with text and seduce with form. They are signals, an invitation to follow the path of the painting gesture, discovering in it the potential of experience
