Maša Knapič: Sharpening … Please Steady Your Device

In September, artist Maša Knapič will hold a solo exhibition at the DobraVaga Gallery. The basic starting point of her work is the painting medium. She mainly addresses the questions of the position of painting today and what can (still) be its content. Through repetition, the use of various technological procedures and experimentation with materials, she builds images that hint at content that evades. The paintings in the exhibition are scattered and disassembled into parts that are in an interdependent relationship. Stability is achieved due to the repetition of elements, but there is a likelihood that at some point, it will change and collapse.

Maša Knapič (1996) graduated in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana in 2019, where she is currently completing her master’s degree. She works in the field of painting, which she understands as being in an inseparable relationship with other media. She places her paintings in a coherent relationship with drawings, plastics and space. Shee explores the impact of the environment on the individual, the repetition of patterns of behavior, and identity. In doing so, she is interested in the relationship between the image and its bearer and the context in which an individual work is embedded. She often manipulates the capabilities of the material she works with. She is also involved in design. Since 2018, she has participated in the student platform Galerija 7:069, where she works as an exhibition organizer.

On view until October 4th 2021.
