Her works embrace the public as a whole while at the same time acknowledging the singularities of each viewer. The energetic flow of each piece is able to capture the imagination of a wide range of different perspectives making the viewpoint of the artist the starting point of a communal journey through reality and imagination. The viewer is left free to wander and feed into Dubicki’s abstractions to generate new thoughts for the benefit of a personal visual experience and introspection. Her abstractions derive from realistic objects such as water, rocks, piers and other coastal fixtures that in the artist’s own words, “serve as metaphors and departures for more personal connections and associations.”

Each work is reminiscent of such real elements and of the reality of the different periods of the year and times of the day to which they happen to belong. The exhibition presents a series of works that are, “intuitive responses to light and dark, structure, form and scale”, that shift from the placid yet joyful mood of a vivaciously colored moment in daylight springtime to the more somber and deeply poetic blue tones of night-time. The range of color choices is evidently intentional. The artist creates works that skillfully play with the juxtaposition of monochromatic sections against more intensely colored and busily detailed ones. The result is a striking series of paintings that is the embodiment of a range of circumstances that become stages to the tumultuous springing of the viewers’ emotional reactions, a result that is much aspired to in the realm of fine art and a very well-deserved achievement for work of high caliber such as Dubicki’s.
