> DESCRIPTION

Maria Albulet’s work radiates a sense of control, maintaining a constant and consistent abstract image-field. This characterizes her as a contemporary generation of abstract expressionists quietly informed by Joan Mitchell, Philip Guston and Lila Lewis Irving.  Bold colour blocks of red and black conceptually form as opposed forces accentuating the stillness of a wooded thicket, suggesting that a forest is a complex living entity of perfected harmony and universal balance.    

Mississauga-based Albulet applies colour in methodical, short, hatch-like strokes in her paintings. She says, “I love the challenge of visual texture and detail.” The monochromatic colour fields resonate and seem to control the viewer’s mind with the infinite detail and ongoing evolution of depth and wonder of the forest.    

About the XIT-RM    

Emerging and established artists in the Greater Toronto Area and the Mississauga region are showcased monthly in the Project Room. Six artists annually are selected with a published catalogue and accompanying critical text. Exhibitions are selected by the Curator that honour the Mission and Mandate goals of The AGM.    

The emphasis is on contemporary art and critical engagement. The exhibition space is dedicated to the vision of highlighting regional talent. The exhibition features its own opening/vernissage and also ties closely with regional universities and link in with the educational components of the AGM Resource Room and the new Artist Professional Practices Series.    

The XIT-RM is sponsored by The RBC Foundation.
