"This painting has traveled with me through six moves and four cities," shares artist Agata Kijanka. "It's a very slowly transforming piece that evolved over twelve years. I added various textures using molding paste squeezed through fine metal sheeting, flower-shaped collage elements embedded in paint, scratches, and more. It wasn't until I started applying and removing oil and cold wax to what would eventually blossom into this colorful, uninhibited, and dramatic piece, that this painting started to quickly find its destined form."

Agata Kijanka

Albuquerque, New Mexico

Artist Agata Kijanka creates sensually textured abstract paintings. Working from visual and emotional memory and imagination, Agata builds each artwork in layers - applying paint with scrapers and brayers, transferring paint from other surfaces, and removing paint with solvent and blades. One of the defining moments for Agata as an artist was when she moved alone to Santa Fe from Seattle in 2008. As she explains, it was "a beautiful place that I love with its rich art related history, plentiful galleries, and inspiring landscapes. I anticipated staying for 6 months but I ended up staying for 4 years." She continued her artistic journey to Sedona, AZ and now lives in Albuquerque where she works from her home studio. Putting down roots in the southwest has influenced Agata's work, especially time in the desert, the sunshine and open skies. When she's not painting, Agata enjoys cooking, gardening in her desert yard, and talking endlessly to her rescue dog.
