Magdalena Skupinska: Fertile Plate
11 March 2023, 5:03 PM
Magdalena Skupinska’s debut solo exhibition in the United States ‘Fertile Plate’ is on view at Blum & Poe, Los Angeles.
Skupinska’s abstract compositions emerge from the coming together of dynamic hues of paint formulated by the artist with purely organic materials, free of artificial substances. When concocting her paints, Skupinska’s ingredients range from ginkgo biloba, blue spirulina, to activated charcoal, and her selection is guided by varying intentions. A decision could be provoked by a color, a healing or nourishing property of a plant, the artist’s personal relationship with a plant, a texture, a scent, or simply intuition. Often, the different qualities—hue, meaning for the artist, or consistency—of disparate plants come together to create a single image.
