November 17 - December 9
Fascinated by the genre of Western landscape painting, Bulgarian-born artist Boryana Rusenova-Ina explores the way is it’s been used to frame our collective and personal relationship to place. Her own landscapes, painted from dioramas painstakingly constructed in her studio using found and personal images, evoke a range of response and emotion that often conflict. “Both coherent and disjointed; the parts belong together and yet imply multiple viewpoints and histories.”
Boryana earned MFA from The Ohio State University in 2016. She has an MA in Art, Design, and Architecture from the Glasgow School of Art, and a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design. She is currently on the faculty of both Ohio State University and Columbus State Community College.
