Flowers burst out from Alesandro Ljubicic’s large, textured canvases. Sweeps and daubs of vivid colour convey his intense response to the beauty of nature. Ljubicic’s less resolved Colour Studies share the same emotional charge. These smaller panels, created at the same time as the larger flower works, further explore the effects of layering paint. Whorls and waves of different colours resist blending together, competing to be the most vibrant. The trace of Alesandro Ljubicic’s brush and palette knife is clearly visible; dragging and scooping thick layers of oil paint to create sculptural surfaces.
