A desire to complete a work of art can intimidate the very initiative. Yet such a work can beautifully and endlessly express an artist’s passion for process, story, discovery and possibility. Such passion is at the centre of Andrea Soos’ practice.

Each element of Soos’ abstractions shows a process balancing spontaneity with deliberate intent. The blithe motion of her pencil lines are too idiosyncratic to have pre-planning behind them, yet they show no sign of hesitation; they are firm in pressure and consistent in flow. The colour markings she interweaves with them are balanced and keenly placed, yet unexpected. Soos seems to be at play in the open space that meditative presence offers. There is depth in her movement, underlying levity and risk. One gesture seems unexpected across the previous one. A line’s dancerly cursive offsets its rough density; a patch of sunlit colour bleeds raw across the paper, only to be criss-crossed with focussed, patterned markings. Soos offsets care with rawness. And while her process reflects complexity and counterpoint, she arrives easily at the precise moment between too much and too little.
