Conduit Gallery presents Maja Ruznic: "Avet" opening reception
Conduit Gallery will present a solo exhibition of new work by Los Angeles-based artist, Maja Ruznic. Her recent paintings and fabric sculptures are a search for lost cousins, forgotten uncles and unknown fathers. This will be the second exhibition at Conduit Gallery for Ruznic.
Avet, the Bosnian word for apparition or ghost, is a reference to Ruznic’s creative process of pulling her characters out of nothingness. Ruznic’s first exhibition at Conduit Gallery (2014) populated the Project Room space with figurative works on paper; the figures seemingly pulled out of washy pools of ink. Artificially long features and limbs wrapped and coiled around the subjects at times deeming the figure almost borderless.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through February 17.
