Magdalena Kokines, born in Johannesburg in a family of Greek origin, lives and works in her Parisian studio. Her use of pure colors, the vitality of her lines and geometric forms intertwined: her work retains the memory of the art of the Ndebele that she discovered as a child in South Africa.

In France, her pictorial world enlarged, and asserted itself. She regularly exhibits oil paintings, on canvas or cardboard, with vivid colors mixed with pigments. They offer their shining light, inserted in well defined lines, in a sort of abstract dance placing her in a universal trend in contemporary painting. Their positive strength touches directly one’s heart and generates warmth and hope.

The purity of linear masses expresses rigor and serenity. This is how her vital compositions find a graphic and chromatic balance, pertinent and joyful. She draws her influences from several worlds: the Bauhaus vein, the Futuristic movement, Jean-Michel Atlan, Fernand Léger…, but also the primitive Greek and African art or the calligraphy of Asia.

The impulse of Magdalena Kokines’ purified work, at the same time free and well balanced, echoes her deep desire of seeing men overcoming their divisions in order to build together a happy society. This constant concern was born with her early commitment to the fight against apartheid, which ruled the country in which she grew up.
