Two more South Cotswold landscapes are transformed into melting colours and bold shapes.


This pair of works has a distilled, mesmeric feeling of hazy morning sunlight and evening glow,  with softly-melded pigments and bold contours carrying our eye to the far horizon, between deep undulating canyons and rolling terrains.


Luba's charactertistic teal palette gives us the strong structure of each piece and is softened by tangerines, pinks and peaches, melting into hints of sun-soaked reds.


We get the sense of wide open spaces, scale and distance: landscapes with a distinctive feel-good factor, that would work well if these were displayed singly - but be even better if they were on show as a pair. 


    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.
