Annka Kultys Gallery is pleased to present Soft, an exhibition of new paintings by Berlin-based Dutch artist Rachel de Joode. On show are five of the artist’s large scale (152 x 125 cm) abstract paintings from her 2020 Sloppy Therapy series. Soft is de Joode’s first solo show in London.

De Joode describes the central focus of her practice as the space between the physical and the virtual worlds, exploring the relationship between the three dimensional object and its two dimensional representation. Her work encapsulates a constant play between surface, meaning and materiality, disrupting the entanglement between these different plateaus in order to regain simplicity.

Artist ( Description ): 

Rachel de Joode is a Dutch-born, Berlin-based multi-media artist. She mixes mediums, particularly those of photography, sculpture and most recently, painting. Her work bounces between the physical and the virtual, exploring the relationship between the three dimensional object and its two dimensional representation. De Joode’s work is a constant play between surface, representation and materiality.

De Joode earned her diploma in time-based art from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. She was awarded the Deutsche Börse Residency Program at the Frankfurter Kunstverein in Frankfurt (2013) and the Sculpture Space funded residency (2012), as well as a residency at LMCC swingspace program at Governors Island (2013 – 2014) in New York. She has received funding from the Mondrian fund, the Berliner Senat and the Royal Dutch Embassy. Her work has been reproduced and reviewed in Vitamin C clay and ceramics (Phaidon), Artforum, Artnet, The New York Times, The New Yorker, DIS magazine and Charlotte Cotton’s book Photography is Magic.

Venue ( Address ): 

472 Hackney Road | Unit 3, 1st Floor | London E2 9EQ
