“Ivanka Kubler found in her grand-grand parents’ house a bag with around four hundred cocoons.”
“She sculptured each cocoon individually with six “wings” looking like an open hand (arm with five fingers). Some people interpreted it as a flower.”
“The art is at once transcendentally primitive embodying a universal oneness of geometric circle, with a subtle play of patterns. A reinvention of Indian mandalas or reminiscent of mosaic in Ancient Greece, an assemblage and repetition of small particles. In modern parlance the repetition in Ida’s artwork could be seen as deconstructed pixilation.”
“Ivanka makes sculptural paintings using silk cocoons as the main material for her works which are highly influenced by Abstract Expressionism. Huge, exquisitely crafted canvasses dominate the space in a quiet subtle manner. Their presence is noted as when you invite your glamorous friend to a VIP party and she makes you feel elegant too at the same time. “
"NEW YORK, NY.- Today, mixed media artist Ida Ivanka Kubler announces the completion of a new phase in her well-travelled series, “The Birth of An Idea.” Growing up on a silk sericulture farm in rural Bulgaria shaped Kubler’s creative practice. “I must have been around five-years old, sitting under one of the trees in my grandparents’ mulberry forest, when I discovered silk cocoons.”
“Silk cocoons pass their lives in complete silence nurtured under the shadows of mulberry trees. The artist takes this birth of silence and creates art that is immensely relaxing. "Birth of an Idea" artworks release the silent energy of cocoons to the viewer and the organic silent world of this birth under the mulberry tree is very welcoming. The result is at once both liberation and relaxation. It is as if time itself has stopped and we become connected.” “… these artworks have been deemed to improve people’s health.”
