Edel Assanti is pleased to present Fields of Conflict, Agata Bogacka’s first solo exhibition in the UK.

Bogacka’s abstract paintings are characterised by competing planes of colour in constant states of transition, creating formal imbalances and tensions. The compositions enact dialogues, negotiations and conflicts by visualising the structural dynamics that underpin all levels of human experience.

Sidestepping literal references and depictions, Bogacka is concerned with the territoriall thresholds that define all relationships between individual entities, describing the subject matter of her paintings as “pure situations”. If abstraction as an artistic strategy has roots in the conjuring of extra-sensory, non-objective worlds, Fields of Conflict, comprising self-contained series bearing titles such as Disagreement, Inequality, Annexation, invites us to question the lineage of societal conditions through which everyday interpersonal relations are formed.
