Ewelina Bochenska @ The Fortnight Institute

Elizabeth Buhe reviews Ewelina Bochenska: A Hole Was Placed in the Sky and Sealed with Water recently on view at The Fortnight Institute.

Buhe writes that the show “featured nearly thirty jewellike oil paintings—most around eight by ten inches, though two could fit in the palm of your hand—that seemed to transform Fortnight Institute into a site for communion with a mystical realm. Mixing vivid rainbow hues and muddier tones, the compositions portray visionary-seeming landscapes and imagery culled from Native American mythology, with much of the latter modeled on ancient petroglyphs in present-day Utah and Arizona.”
