IM-MA-TE-RI-AL

Mia Saharla’s art comes with an unique way of relating – being in contact to existential delicacy – subtle transitions of matter – like losing matter – gentle markings forming a physical dialogue – on the painting canvas – capturing the presence of flowers – moments in silence – spent with the canvas as a shroud – the transparent contact – and the body.

Working with narrative process of the painting – painting proposes the next one – joy spreads like a trance – apparent point of action – in a movement within immateriality – losing borders
– like dashes in the snow – themes that relate to absence – and presence – process of remembering – what has been important lately?

The process it´self – accidents and intentions – face each other.
