Reaching for the Sublime

Aleksandra Rdest's art uses a language drawn from weather patterns; inspired by sound waves, clouds, particles and cells on a microscopic level. The point of departure for these works is growth and decay; cellular division and multiplication, weather patterns biological colonization. Rdest’s love affair with colour gives rise to these paintings which are created by richly layering veils of paint to form a deep surface.

Beautiful stuff, thanks. Click through to the bigger images, the details make the images work. I'd love to see it in person.

Strangely, these remind me fo Bob Ross. I don't mean that as snark (who would snark about Bob Ross?), I mean the way that the naked brush work sometimes vibrates between brush stroke and form.
