Ambiguity

Art exhibition by Kateryna Kobylianska

From January 25, through the run of Wildside Festival

Kateryna Kobylianska has been communicating visual research on mind games since 2018. She is a Ukrainian artist based in Montreal, who explores concepts of nature, silence, synchronicity, and sincerity.

Kateryna believes that non-figurative art leaves room for viewers to build their individual interpretations by giving free rein to their imagination. Or simply the invitation to contemplate the gap between what we see and how we understand, what we caught.

Artist statement and bio

Kateryna Kobylianska has been communicating visual research on mind games since 2018. She is a Ukrainian artist based in Montreal, who explores concepts of nature, silence, synchronicity, and sincerity.


Kateryna believes that non-figurative art leaves room for viewers to build their individual interpretations by giving free rein to their imagination.Or simply the invitation to contemplate the gap between what we see and how we understand, what we caught.


Using multiple layers of mixed media in her creative process, she paints using acrylics, watercolor, pastels, and lacquer on a large canvas, creating abstract paintings.


Her artworks are represented in exhibitions from South Sinai to Barcelona, from Kyiv to Montreal. They become causes for pauses, where Kateryna invites the audience. So far the artworks have been shown at 20 expositions. And Kobylianska is taking an active part in artresidencies, interdisciplinary projects.


“My art is eternal research on borders and metaphysic light”, – says Kateryna.


As of the last events in Ukraine, the main question artist is posing is how to combine the reality of war, which is present in her head, and a reality of peace, which surrounds her in Canada. That`s what you will observe in her visual research.
