“Hard-edge keeps me on the edge of something only time will allow me to understand.” – Sacha Warunkiw
As colors collide, Minimalism can be emotional, evoking deep personal feelings while at the same time remaining beautifully simple. Warunkiw’s Hard-edge colorful abstraction works play on geometrical shapes derived from nature and the imagination. The inspiration for his paintings oftentimes derived from an idea percolating during a dream or meditation session.
Color and shape merge together on the canvas to express energy as well as peacefulness. The zen like vision evoked by a simple shape on a single colorfield can speak louder than a hundred brushstrokes of many colors, simplifying our visual transcendence through the realm of space and time. On the other side of the artistic coin Warunkiw’s abstract expressionist works play out like the motion of Sufi dervish dancers, sitar riffs or a symphony of impromptu jazz bites. Bouncing, clashing, inviting one to visually feast.
