urška rednak

Urška Rednak is a breath of fresh air in the world of contemporary painting. By introducing traditional embroidery techniques to her canvas, she challenges our spatial understanding of her work, disrupting the surface of paint with wool to add depth, texture and colour. 
Urška’s embroidery shifts between bold, abstract shapes and delicate stitching which creates words like ink from a pen. Combining bold colour and seemingly fragile thread, Urška’s art is a powerful experience, and we quickly learn to form our own narrative from the shapes and shades in front of us. 
Her abstract visual language is inviting and unfamiliar at the same time. Reading her work is like listening to a language we’re not familiar with. The artist says she composes colours like a writer would form words into text. “It takes you ages to find the right word, so switch it for another, delete it, add or change it altogether. In the end, what’s important is that you get a meaningful whole.”
Urška’s abstract style materialised spontaneously when she clashed two mediums together, but her appetite for colour took time to evolve (embroidery demands time, after all). The creative process is transparent in her work, and traces of pencil are often visible in the finished piece. The relief of each piece shifts her paintings from a two-dimensional to a three-dimensional art space; totally serene and free from rigidity or harshness.
