This event has ended.

Djordje Ozbolt's latest grouping of paintings, with their distinctly surrealist styles and mythological referents, seem to reinvigorate the spirit of the painter as supernatural channeler of history. His imagined scenes acknowledge the peculiar arrangement of the modern world, as absurdist intervention overlaps with humanist tendencies and primeval emotion. In "Offering," a seraphic village woman in traditional garb makes a sacrifice of a bird with talons made of flowers and a rosary made of Vienna sausages. These talismans seem to imply a sort of confused desperation, as if this woman is caught trying to cover all bases so completely that her offerings become foolishly incongruous. As an illustration of the futility of the search for unimpeded communication (with each other, with nature, or with the spirit world), Ozbolt implies that perhaps the impositions of the modern age are not entirely to blame for the seemingly delirious nature of society.
