There is a marked harmony of spontaneity and intention, of intuition and inspired calculation, in Bania’s works. Each smear, blot and dye stain, on fields of raw untouched canvas, seems to have simultaneously found its own inevitable shape and to have been dictated with clarity.

At once emphatically flat while implying unbounded, limitless space, Bania’s shifting transparant planes delve into the spatial possibilities of the picture plane. Every element is exactly where it has to be, not where it happens to be, to create interplays of spatial flux. The works explore the abstract geographies that we navigate, in waking hours and in dream. Each painting begins as a field of space from which an environment arises. As the space is acted upon, a conversation ensues between materiality and immateriality, emptiness and fullness, order and abandon, objects seen and energy felt. The compositions that emerge are built from these contrasting forces.
