Almine Rech Paris is pleased to present Ewa Juszkiewicz's second solo exhibition with the gallery, on view from September 4 to October 9, 2021.
In her second solo exhibition at Almine Rech, Ewa Juszkiewicz unveils seven large-scale oil paintings depicting braided hair and vegetation such as buds, fresh leaves, or fallen leaves and dry grasses that are mutating in different ways. These can be seen literally occupying and outgrowing the confines of the canvas and creating unified surfaces against a neutral, almost monochromatic background. Each canvas harks back to portraiture during the Ancien Régime. For some time, Juszkiewicz has been working on small-scale portrait paintings. In these new works, she has increased the scale dramatically.
