Playing With Fire: Ania Hobson Debuts in Los Angeles
April 22, 2022
“In many paintings, I’m asking the observers to finish the story themselves, and everyone will have a different viewpoint and interpretation,” Ania Hobson told us a few years ago in her print feature with Juxtapoz. What is apparent in her new solo show at Steve Turner in LA, her first show in the USA, is that there is a stripped-down emotionally honesty in her newest works. The works are both a bird’s eye view and personal portrait of the artist, making for an autobiographical tale of an artist exploring portrait work in a new and complicated way.
