Anna Kruhelska is a visual artist and practising architect based in Lodz, Poland. She has worked as an architect on a vast array of major projects in Russia, Malaysia, and the UK, all of which 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. Annas artwork is known to flow into one another, creating the illusion that each piece is meant to flow into the next.
The works are made from archival, light-resistant and acid-free paper. All the pieces are folded and assembled by hand with the meticulous attention to detail.
