BETWEEN COLORS BY CLAUDIA KAKA
July 09 – 21, 2024
Palazzo Pisani-Revedin, Venice

ITSLIQUID Group is pleased to announce the opening of BETWEEN COLORS, a solo exhibition of Claudia Kaka, curated by Luca Curci, that will open on July 09, 2024, at 06:00 PM at Palazzo Pisani-Revedin in Venice.

The exhibition showcases portraits of women existing between two worlds: black-and-white and full-color. In her paintings, Claudia Kaka combines her experience as a makeup artist in photo sessions with her fascination for cultural and ethnic diversity and its impact on the expression of womanhood. The figures, a nod to Claudia’s love of black-and-white photography, are surrounded by a multitude of shades in costumes and decorations, reflecting the artist’s passion for color. Each artwork is meticulously crafted, with figures dressed in detailed costumes from different parts of the world, showcasing painted jewelry and ornaments, and the textures and patterns of the fabrics. The colorful backgrounds enhance the emotional depth of the pieces: femininity in these works radiates passion and beauty, self-awareness and courage, mystery and strength.

Claudia’s original prints, often large-format, are inspired by folklore from various cultures, celebrating the vibrant colors and shapes of local costumes and jewelry. The heroines in the paintings, depicted in monochrome, are ‘surrounded’ by multicolored elements like clothing, headgear, or jewelry.
Claudia’s journey from predominantly black-and-white imagery to incorporating vivid colors is best illustrated in the piece “Constance & Gloria”: on the left, the shadowy, departing figure of Constance is replaced by Gloria, who brings color and light into the scene.

CLAUDIA KAKA BIOGRAPHY

Claudia Kaka (b.1979) is a Poznan-based artist and painter. Her work focuses on capturing and portraying the uniqueness of femininity of women from different corners of the world. Her fascination with the colours, patterns and jewellery of different ethnic groups is evident in all her works. It stems from and is closely linked to influences from African, Mediterranean and Latin American cultures. The colour fusion in the paintings contrasts with the figures in black and white: this depiction of figures is reminiscent of black-and-white photography and represents another field of artistic activity, where the author takes on the role of a make-up artist. Claudia Kaka’s works have so far been exhibited in Poland, France, Spain, Italy and Turkey. Her works have found their way into many private collections.
