The Extended Line: Anna Kot : Anna Robson
Tuesday October 15th – Sunday October 20th (12.00 – 6.00)
Private View: Tuesday 15th October (6pm – 9pm)
The Extended Line showing at 44AD Artspace between October 15th and 20th, is a mixed media exhibition presenting recent works by two up and coming Bath based artists, Anna Robson and Anna Kot.
Both have studios at 44AD and, as well as sharing a name, both also share a fascination with the role line plays in abstract art and the effects it can create. Anna Kot’s paintings are bright and lively and the lines she uses (often diagonal) add energy to the vivid colours she favours. Anna Robson also combines line with colour but in addition to this she plays with light, shadow and reflection, often combining sculpture and painting. Her playful minimalist approach draws attention not only to the nature of the materials she is using but also to how they sit within the space they are in. This exploration of space is echoed in Kot’s work and especially some of her photographic compositions which incorporate line to generate patterns in space and, as with her paintings, invite the viewer to look again.
Despite the wide range of materials used, the whole effect is one of fun and excitement, and will leave the visitor to wonder sometimes quite what the line is doing.
