The exhibition by Joanna Pinkiewicz showcases works on paper and canvas related to colour theory, symbolism, and metaphysical concepts: Intelligence, Infinity, Space and Creation.
The artist is interested in learning about recurrent cultural and metaphysical symbols related to creation, transformation, and spiritual growth.
“The reduction of metaphysical concepts into symbols is a powerful cultural magic. Many such symbols, such as the lozenge or the circle emerged across cultures and across the globe and survived for thousands of years of colonisation and co-option. It is possible, that the survival has been dependent on the process of reduction and the symbols still hold its original meaning and power”.
– Joanna Pinkiewicz
The exhibition’s aim is to reinstate the power of the symbolic in abstraction. The function of symbolism is one of a conduit which links to truth about the nature of reality.
