Gina Kuschke’s practice spans sound and painting. Interrogating identity, environment and sense of self, Kuschke’s paintings are heavily process-based. Creating large-scale works on canvas guided by impulse, rhythm and chance, she works through the physical space of painting, drawing from the temporal space of sound.
For Kuschke, her paintings act as a mirror, a call and response evolving with every physical action and accident. Multi-layered and textured, Kuschke treats the surface as a field of improvisation and excavation, her compositions toeing the line between anguish and joy. Through her self-reflective approach to figurative and landscape silhouettes, mysterious scenes of formative experiences reveal themselves within shadows of form and architectural structures. Kuschke’s paintings present an uncanny version of reality, manifesting internal conflicts and asking us to question our perspectives.
Gina Kuschke (b. Cape Town, South Africa) lives and works in London. She holds a BA (Hons) in History of Art from The Courtauld Institute of Art, London, and will be attending The Royal College of Art, London, in 2023/24 to pursue her MA in painting. Kuschke has shown work in both London and Europe and her recent exhibitions include group shows at Demoni Dazanti (Rome), Soho Revue and Purslane (London), and a solo show at Soho Revue (London).
