“I’m interested in seeing the world from a completely detached perspective.”

Annka Kultys Gallery is pleased to present Soft, an exhibition of new paintings by Berlin-based Dutch artist Rachel de Joode.  On show are five of the artist’s large scale (152 x 125 cm) abstract paintings from her 2020 Sloppy Therapy series.  Soft is de Joode’s first solo show in London.

De Joode describes the central focus of her practice as the space between the physical and the virtual worlds, exploring the relationship between the three dimensional object and its two dimensional representation.  Her work encapsulates a constant play between surface, meaning and materiality, disrupting the entanglement between these different plateaus in order to regain simplicity.
