Summer Days  has a warm and quiet feeling of dusk peace about it,  with softly-melded colours and gentle curves and contours.


Luba's charactertistic teal palette is still strong but it is softened by peaches, ambers and sun-warmed reds and oranges, leaving us with a feeling of long summer evenings and uninterrupted rural vistas.


    Luba is a contemporary landscape artist living in Gloucestershire.

    Her abstract paintings explore an emotional representation of nature in all of its states and behaviours, from gentle and calm to brutal and violent.


    In her exuberant, colour-drenched depictions, Nature comes to life and unleashes its full, elemental force, from shimmering sunshine to turbulent storm, dawn to dusk.

    With acrylic, oil and charcoal as her main media, she plays with pure colours, light effects and form, intensifying them, pushing them to extremes. Palette knife marks create texture and numerous layers of paint overlap to add depth.


    Luba's approach combines painting from memory, sketches, photographs and, of course, on location work. Her technique is energetic and intuitive. There's often a spontaneous reaction - or an impression of spontaneity.


    It's about the way a subject or scene makes both the artist and the viewer feel: how we respond to shape and colour, to dynamic pattern and brush marks.


    Her artworks have appeared in exhibitions in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Devon and Cornwall. She has a degree in Art History.
