ABOUT ANGELA KALLUS

Kallus’ acrylic relief paintings, their delicate, purposeful formations and obsessive placement of blooms create an overall velvety feeling like that of a lush rose garden, or perhaps the frosting of an overly ambitious wedding cake. Indeed, to make her rose “sculpture paintings,” she begins with cake decorator’s tools, which she fills with very thick, transparent paint in order to make thousands of rosettes of varying sizes. The overall effect is one of both visual and conceptual disorientation, with a heavy dose of the sublime.  BIO
