Alicia Dubnyckyj is a fine artist who paints contemporary cityscapes. Her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the UK, New York, San Franciso, Portland, France, Canada and Holland, and she is held in many private collections all over the world. She is currently represented by galleries in London, Paris, San Franciso, New York, Nottingham and Glasgow. She uses gloss paint on board to produce her pieces, while photography and various digital processes are used to gather the raw materials prior to painting. Dubnyckyj employs a jigsaw-like technique to create flat forms in rich gloss paint on board to suggest a modern global aesthetic, while photography and various digital processes are used to gather the raw materials prior to painting. Her complex detailing of the semiotics of the city with its iconic buildings and city structures, enable the artist to develop a new formal language of expression that represents her personal relationship towards the metropolis. Alicia reveals the true essence of place and demonstrates that the façade of glossy high rise living cannot eliminate the unique quality that each city holds. Alicia aims to transfer her appreciation of architecture into a composition that can also evoke an emotive state, linking to the city in question. Her process derives from a notion of personal space within any major city (in that one tends to feel cramped), hence producing her technique of using digital technology to produce an image which is seen as small abstracted shapes close up, with the full image only really viewed once the viewer stands back.
