SHARAIA, 2019. Acrylic on Canvas. When dots turn into lines and lines define areas: in her work, Anke Ryba combines surfaces and space to form abstract, unique harmonies. Her pieces are “painted passions”. They master the extremes between reality and dream, between the tangible and the metaphysical. “Dreams acquire a space without obscuring reality. For me, that means relaxing and permitting emotion. I also want to get to know the effect of colours and the influence of chance. Seeing and feeling colours is life – a key to the soul”.
