Maria Albulet’s work radiates a sense of control, maintaining a constant and consistent abstract image-field. This characterizes her as a contemporary generation of abstract expressionist quietly informed by Joan Mitchell, Philip Guston, and Lila Lewis Irving. Bold colour blocks of red and black conceptually form as opposed forces accentuating the stillness of a wooded thicket, suggesting that a forest is a complex living entity of perfected harmony and universal balance. Mississauga based Albulet applies colour in methodical, short, hatch-like strokes in her paintings. “I love the challenge of visual texture and detail.” The monochormatic colour fields resonate and seem to control the viewer’s mind with the infinite and ongoing evolution of depth and wonder of the forest.
