Kolbusz continues his investigation into identity and context with this new painting, Ride. This work is a scene from a random snap taken with the artist’s phone through a car window in Athens in 2018. Hovering between abstraction and figuration, this painting lacks the romance of a holiday snap and expresses the immediacy of a moment – a mobile phone shop, air conditioners, stored outdoor furniture, a taxi, yet also devoid of people… Kolbusz says, “I have kept this image close to me, and wonder how details would have been missed if I hadn’t taken the picture and what that could mean.”
With work which makes fleeting moments last, this strangely beautiful painting is about the present and presence.
