People who have saved this event:


Art at the Institute is pleased to present Moving Forward, an exhibition of recent abstract and figurative paintings by Ukrainian artist Les Panchyshyn communicating and connecting with an exploratory manifestation he calls “self-identification.”


His works employ universal organic symbols of his own design that transcend time, place and language to appeal to the level of the unconscious mind, offering a pathway of release from his past and present. Curated by Walter Hoydysh, PhD and Christina Dnistrian, doctoral candidate at the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv (Ukraine), this exhibition marks Mr. Panchyshyn’s first showing with the Ukrainian Institute of America. 

Panchyshyn asserts that “moving forward” is essential to one’s evolving development and the ultimate realization of dreams. Three series of canvases will demonstrably link a narrative examining the artist’s conceptual yet ironic interpretations and reflections on eternity, the past and the future: Space, Forests and Figuration. Here, the mind is his subject, not so much the organic shapes and forms occupying his canvases.
