The Sunday painter presents a solo exhibition by Czech born Canada based artist Veronica Pausova.
Pausova’s paintings create semi-abstract spaces where the interchange between the physical and cognitive plays out. The compositions have a diagrammatic quality that hints of some kind of order, or a potential site for an action to take place.
Within the works hands and ears interact with the structural plains of the paintings. Although they are disembodied there is no sense of gore here, nor do we question the whereabouts of their original owner (they are in fact the artist’s).
Instead, Pausova deploys them more as isolated ideas, connected not to a personality but an action. In this context they exist to serve a mechanical purpose; nudging, listening, grabbing.
Veronika Pausova was born in 1987 in Prague, Czech Republic. She currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
