EMILIA DUBICKI

Emilia Dubicki lives and works in the Morris Cove neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut.
Her paintings are primarily abstract, but sometimes representational imagery is integrated into
the work, and sense of scale, structural forms, and movement are of special interest. In the work,
observed scenery emerges from memory and mixes with invention, recreating moods with the
energy of vivid blues, for example, and with expressive or subtle brush work.


About her work she writes, I like vast expanses and active streets. I want to capture what is
compelling about a location or setting while asking what’s this place about? Why am I
responding to this place? The paintings, then, are also about questions. How do I paint
thoughts? How do I paint sound or emotion? I work on a painting with these ideas and certain
visuals in mind. The process of painting is a continuous search for the truth. When I paint I want
to travel to a new place in the work -- I want the work to be alive.


Emilia was recently invited to attend the residency program at the Pouch Cove Foundation, New
Foundland in 2022. She has received artist residencies from the I-Park Foundation, the Vermont
Studio Center; and the Wurlitzer Foundation. She exhibits her work nationally and has also
exhibited in Italy, Japan and South Korea. Emilia’s paintings are in numerous private, public and
corporate collections domestically and abroad. Most notably, in fall 2019, the newly opened
Nordstrom, Inc. flagship store in Manhattan installed four of her large scale paintings. In 2018,
she had two large paintings installed in the library of Gateway Community College, New Haven.


Emilia earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing and Literature from Emerson College.
