"A Most Violent Year" - Tambaran 2 Gallery
Through March 12, 2020 - New York, New York

Alone, dead winter, and again, Im awake with the ravens. I havent really slept since the end of November. On a Fulbright grant in Kyiv, the city of my birth. From a country that no longer exists. In a new country I no longer know, I must spend the remainder of the cold months in Ukraine.The extended metaphor: journey is uphill and the perils too real. War, martial law, global market economies, all of our lives in the balance, and always, the missing. The missing and the art are the only constants.My studio looks like a room prepped for an execution. Plastic wall to ceiling, and Im painting about myself, about vulnerability, about love, about longing. Im painting about politics, about turmoil, about misunderstanding. Im painting about systemic violence, and the present so informed by nostalgia.The winter lasts right up until the summer. I have completed some projects and broken new ground. I have suffered but ate well. I, mostly intact, brought back this testament of my time and labor for your consideration.- Misha Tyutyunik

BEYOND THE STARSJoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present Beyond The Stars, an exhibition of new work by artist collective Cascione & Lusciov at the gallerys New York location. Comprised of Silvia Cascione and Roman Lusciov, the duos new body of sculptural work explores both hardwired and au courant notions of form, line, and the romantic associations tied to outer space.The exhibition title, Beyond The Stars, invites multi-faceted connections between the origin of life and futuristic dimension, while visually translating the immateriality of space and time into streamlined, biomorphic forms.
