Anna Kruhelska is a visual artist and practicing architect from Lodz in Poland. She has worked as an architect on many major projects in Russia, Malaysia, and the UK, which has formed her understanding of form, symmetry, and space. This has given her the knowledge that has allowed her to cultivate a harmonious 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. These artworks are beautifully presented and often work alongside one another in formation. Although not officially diptychs, the artworks often appear to flow from one frame to the next.
