Ekarasa Doblanovic’s practice has a strong grounding in materiality and the affective nature of abstraction. Using organic materials such as pure pigment and egg tempera, the paintings appear lusciously tactile and rich in colour. These formal qualities allow the work to affect the senses while exploring visual-material relationships. The delicate layering of colour and texture creates spatial ambiguities.
Impermanence and instability also play a role in her artworks; from the moment of chance when liquid runs and paper absorbs, to the careful balancing of her more recent ‘modular’ works. Despite the brightness of these works, they speak quietly about the amount of thought and care involved in their conception.
