“Twenty-two Horses, Stags and Bison”

by Valentina DuBasky
Valentina DuBasky draws on her experiences in India through the Fulbright Specialist Program, as well as her travels to see ancient art, cave sites, painted temple walls, and groups of petroglyphs along the Silk Route in China, India, Central Asia and Southeast Asia to create this exciting series of horse, stag and bison paintings. Painted with thick impasto oil paint, and positioned on the edge of abstraction, DuBasky’s paintings can be read as animal, still life, landscape or abstraction. Brush marks painted on or within layers of thick paint, or incised into plaster, allow the surface to become a strata that both reveals and conceals the images. The relationships between myth and form, and between totemic art and the unconscious mind, guide the artist’s process.

“The Cambodian Journal: Drawings 1994-1998”

by Valentina DuBasky
The Cambodian Journal traces a woman artist’s journey of discovery in Cambodia among survivors of the Khmer Rouge genocide that claimed over a million and a half lives. The drawings were created between 1994, after the cease fire ended the long civil war and established a fragile democracy and the first Cambodian National Elections of 1998. As the Cambodian people rebuild their shattered communities, the artist discovers the resiliency of the human spirit under extraordinary circumstances.
