Oleh Denysenko: Etchings

Art at the Institute is delighted to present an exhibition of forty intaglio prints by Ukrainian artist Oleh Denysenko, introducing recent works and archetypal selections from his graphic oeuvre of the past decade. An opening reception for the artist will be held on Friday, November 10, from 6:00–8:00PM.

An innovative and prolific artist practiced in the disciplines of painting, sculpture, calligraphy, and book illustration, Mr. Denysenko is most recognized, internationally, for his intricate etchings on paper.

An astoundingly inventive draftsman, due in part to years of studying the moralizing art of Northern European masters such as Bosch, Bruegel, Cranach and Dürer, among others, Denysenko developed a highly original framework and spatial base around which an alchemy of fantastical and metaphorical character narratives flourish. Curated by Walter Hoydysh, PhD, this exhibition marks the artist's second solo showing with The Ukrainian Institute of America (New York).

Mr. Denysenko lives and works in Lviv, Ukraine.
