About the work
Kianja Strobert
American, b. 1980
Follow

Kianja Strobert’s mixed-media sculptures and works on paper share a coarseness of texture and an expressive line. Often working in series, Strobert strives to maintain a similar rhythm throughout each work by implementing similar color palettes and visual motifs, as in a recent series that combined sculptures of concrete blocks and terracotta shards with bold abstractions on paper rendered in vibrant autumnal hues. Her delicate and colorful works reveal a preoccupation with assuring that every edge of the composition commands an illusion of depth, perspective, light, and motion. Pushing the boundary between abstraction and figuration, Strobert’s works, like Untitled (2011), have no identifiable subject and yet are highly evocative of light and, perhaps, space.
