During February 2006 at the Ohio Art League in Columbus Andrew Ina curates Displaced: Works by Boryana Rusenova. How does one capture a human characteristic in art? Boryana Rusenova’s work consists of made up narratives, where the participants take on the role of the medium that represents them. Using a range of media from oil and water based paint to Xerox transfers and silkscreen, Rusenova’s figurative work is an exploration of human characteristics like fragility, dominance, stability and rejection.
Medium is message and the use of opposing media lends definition to the relationship between the figures and their often-incompatible nature. Different realities are connected through representation to hint at a story, which unfolds when the two characters “switch” environments and impose their nature onto another surface. The figures become familiar characters within a context of many images and juxtapositions. Like the artist and her audience, these personalities develop gradually, through time and change.
The Ohio Art League is a nonprofit membership-based organization, dedicated to the
presentation and support of Ohio artists. The gallery is located at 954 N. High Street
in Columbus’ Short North.
