Experimenting with paint as an object, Pevonka is interested in the Heroic Gesture of a woman; glorifying femininity, as she creates large-scale paintings that are just as much about line and color as they are about texture. Applying hundreds of layers of color, these completely abstract pieces are vibrant with movement. Through gouging and carving, the paint is physically removed from the surface. Digging deeper in some areas, while more shallow in others, psychedelic colors are revealed, evoking emotion and excited contemplation. The work becomes a narrative in which the subject and concept is the paint and the depth it can create with line, color and movement as a non-representative material. This entire body of work creates the idea of paint having its own identity as an object rather than a medium.



In my current exploration of paint I am making acrylic assemblages. These pieces are made entirely from paint, and I excavate the surfaces of my layered paintings. This is what makes up the abstract paintings apart of this solo exhibition Abloom. I use the excavated pieces to explore new textures and subjects. You will see in this current body of work that I am inspired by the intricacies of everyday life from my surroundings.
