Anna Kruhelska

"I love minimalism and simplicity and I am fascinated by patterns, texture and the play of light and shadow. Wanting to combine all these inspirations, I began to experiment with pleating fabrics but after few months, I turned to paper which I used to work with a lot during my university years. While there are many limitations of paper I discovered that it gives me a lot of creative freedom and possibilities. That’s how it all began." - Anna Kruhelska (2023)
Anna Kruhelska is a visual artist and practising architect based in Lodz, Poland. This has formed her understanding of form, symmetry and space, and given her a knowledge which has allowed her to cultivate a congruous and innovative contemporary art practice.

Kruhelska focuses on abstract, three-dimensional paper wall reliefs that work by reflecting light - with the overall effect dependant on the viewer's perspective. The central concept of her work is the interplay between light and shade, contrast, and the repetitive patterns created by the folds and hollows in the work.

Inspired by minimalism, architectural composition, geometry, and origami; Anna creates clean, crisp, often white-on-white framed wall installations. These artworks are beautifully presented and often work alongside one another in formation so, although not officially diptychs, very often the artworks appear to flow from one frame to the next.

Kruhelska's work is represented by leading galleries in the UK, USA & throughout Europe, also being exhibited at prestigious international art fairs.
