“I am always tying up and then deciding to depart.”

Frank O’Hara, To the Harbormaster


For me painting is about asking questions, questions that can’t always be put into words and may not have immediate answers. Ultimately, the art has to be about seeking the truth. From empty canvases something emerges – another question, another painting. In the paintings there is calm and space to ruminate and other times more movement and energy. Each painting is a stop toward a greater destination and a negotiation between external and internal landscapes and visions. Sometimes the memory isn’t so clear as to what was or wasn’t there, what did or didn’t happen.


My recent paintings reference one another. I’m addressing what it is to be of a place that is real and imagined, a place whose weight is on the soul’s shoulders and can’t be shrugged off. The feeling is more gift than burden. The journey continues and leaving is returning.


Emilia Dubicki is a Connecticut based artist. Her paintings are primarily abstract, but sometimes  representational imagery is integrated into the work. She has received residencies from the I-Park Foundation, the Vermont Studio Center; and the Wurlitzer Foundation. ​In summer of 2017 she showed paintings at Five Points Gallery in Torrington, CT and in summer 2016 she had a show at Fred Giampietro Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut. Her paintings are in numerous private and corporate collections.
