The Holiday Series

2014 - .

The series is comprised of paintings presenting religious and secular celebrations, which inspire me as sociological phenomena.  The human form, juxtaposed with landscapes, takes on a leading role in the series.

The series results from observations on what remains after celebrations -- peoples' emotions and changes in the landscape just after the big day, or a significant moment.

Master's Degree project at the Department of Sculpture, The Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Poland - June 2019

It took nearly three years to complete the "Orchard" project, which resulted in two works: graphic and sculptural installations.  They explore the subject of the displacement of the Lemkos people, and document the changing landscape.  The first stages of the works were realized in villages in the Low Beskids, and subsequently the effects were recreated and reduced to a minimalist expression in the installation.
