Pigment, gold leaf, acrylic and oil on wood 17 x17” (43 x 43 cm)


The abstract paintings are called HAY STACKS. Language gives them meaning, even if to mislead, and serves as cheeky allusion to Claude Monet’s Haystacks. These are purposeful misquotations; or at the very least, a natural metamorphosis of one language confronted by the context and habits of another. It is not unlike the shape the Russian language takes after many years in the United States, becoming a Frankenstein — a natural assemblage with specific pidgin rules, idioms, and linguistic behaviors. Another exquisite corpse. Translation of one language into the ill-fitting constructions of another often results in something at once humorous and sincere. But we have no trouble understanding this absurdity; sometimes one language is not enough for all there is to say.

ROMB 4A series, 2019
ROMB _4A_01, ROMB _4A_02, ROMB _4A_03, ROMB _4A_04
Pigment, acrylic and oil on wood 24 x24” (61 x 61 cm)

The ROMB paintings series' take their cues from the color experiments of Mikhail Matyushin, a leading figure of the Russian avant-garde, expanding visual experience of color perception. Ginzburg developed the works with pigments and paints prepared in his studio while studying the physical and spatial properties of colors and their combinations. The works are concerned with perceptions of space and color, and their effects on visual consciousness.

LANDSCAPE TURN
LANDSCAPE TURN _1A
Pigment, gold leaf, acrylic and oil on wood 56” x 35” (142 x 89 cm)

Painting, LANDSCAPE TURN _1A, confuses the abstract with the literal, bringing to mind another present-day method of examination: the landscape mode of an iPhone, turned vertically, fighting against easy viewing.
