“For this artwork Ida assembles recycled silk cocoons, left behind by caterpillars on their way
to maturing into butterflies, into majestic geometric patterns. “ (1)
NEW YORK OPTIMIST
“Ivanka Kubler found in her grand-grand parents’ house a bag with around four hundred
“She sculptured each cocoon individually with six “wings” looking like an open hand (arm with
five fingers). Some people interpreted it as a flower.” (2)
“The art is at once transcendentally primitive embodying a universal oneness of geometric
circle, with a subtle play of patterns. A reinvention of Indian mandalas or reminiscent of
mosaic in Ancient Greece, an assemblage and repetition of small particles. In modern parlance
the repetition in Ida’s artwork could be seen as deconstructed pixilation.” (3)
“Ivanka makes sculptural paintings using silk cocoons as the main material for her works which
are highly influenced by Abstract Expressionism. Huge, exquisitely crafted canvasses dominate
the space in a quiet subtle manner. Their presence is noted as when you invite your glamorous
friend to a VIP party and she makes you feel elegant too at the same time. “ (4)
“Kubler’s works vibrate at a frequency conceived in eloquent harmony. “
“Keep an eye out for these fantastic natural and abstract works.” (5)
“The resulting "Birth of an idea" pictures are at once nurturing, transcending and moving.” (6)
“International artist Ida Ivanka Kubler‘s career has been nothing if not unusual.“ (7)
NEW YORK, NY.- Today, mixed media artist Ida Ivanka Kubler announces the completion of a
new phase in her well-travelled series, “The Birth of An Idea.” Growing up on a silk sericulture
farm in rural Bulgaria shaped Kubler’s creative practice. “I must have been around five-years
old, sitting under one of the trees in my grandparents’ mulberry forest, when I discovered silk
“Silk cocoons pass their lives in complete silence nurtured under the shadows of mulberry
trees. The artist takes this birth of silence and creates art that is immensely relaxing. "Birth of
an Idea" artworks release the silent energy of cocoons to the viewer and the organic silent
world of this birth under the mulberry tree is very welcoming. The result is at once both
liberation and relaxation. It is as if time itself has stopped and we become connected.”
“… these artworks have been deemed to improve people’s health.” (9)
