About the Show
Critically-acclaimed, award-winning, artist Ida Ivanka Kubler will present a solo art exhibition at Chinatown Soup, Orchard Street, New York. Her artwork is emotionally charged, so much so, that rather than just being seen her art must be experienced live. Visitors can expect to feel touched and enlightened as they experience various artworks, including art from “The Birth of An Idea” series, “Paninaro”, “The Letter,” and “Erotic Fertilities” sereies.
Only one (out of a hundred pieces) of “The Birth of An Idea Series”, will be featured. For this artwork Ida assembles recycled cocoons, left behind by caterpillars on their way to maturing into butterflies, into majestic geometric patterns. Because they are arranged flowerlike, sitting on the surface of the canvas, Ida refers to them as “half-objects”, asa they are three dimensional in nature. This art will be placed within a side-specific wall installation: a baroque castle constructed out of tape on the wall.
The “Paninaro” series is comprised of erotic, blurred photographs of the artist with a partner, with drawings on top. “The drawings derive from an old chapel in Tramin in Italy, a place I visited years ago,” remembers Kubler. “A golden curtain will hide this series, so they will become visible to the curious visitor.”
“The Letter” series are sculptured atmospheric scribbles. They represent chaotic messages or letters on canvas, a metaphor of mixed thoughts, feelings and the beauty of it. At the same time gives an impression of different roads, a large universe with planets in it, waves of an ocean, something endless, or the today’s uprooting in a physical and direct sense. The media is hand-extracted silk cocoon fibers. The color is again strong in presence: Deep Violet is magnifying and it is the deepest color in the World. It stays for mystery and delicate love feelings. Some suggest is as deep as death, or as deep as love.
For “Erotic Fertilites”, viewers can expect to see an erotic drawing in a Golden Old Baroque frame. It will be the first artwork from the new series named Erotic Fertilities. This series is about emotion, love, touch, excitement, naughtiness, seduction and youthfulness.
