Anna Škodenko


Green is the brightest colour that Anna uses in this exhibition. The red and blue rarely pop up here and there, and when they do, they represent a sign rather than the painting material. The green (lichen?) asserting itself between the rotten logs (of a raft?) is like the budding possibility of another life. Even the withered flowers have retained their green lushness. Using cuttings from aluminium sheets, her broken and uneven miniature pictures are deliberately random; the paint on them seems to have originated from fading, rusting and wearing, as if squeezed out from body fluids rather than a paint tube. However, the shade most strongly felt in this exhibition is grey.
