“Horned & Antlered Animals”

Book Publication and One-Person Online Exhibition 

by Valentina DuBasky
Abingdon Square Publishing and Viewing Room
October 2020 


This collection of vividly colored, abstracted images of bison, goats, stags and antelope celebrates the shapes and structure of horns and antlers—the spiraling and coiling horns of goats and sheep, the smooth horns of cattle, the meandering or lyre-shaped horns of antelope, and the regal crowns of stags--paired, branched or forked. .

“A Silk Route Bestiary”

by Valentina DuBasky
Abingdon Square Publishing, forthcoming, 2021 


The Silk Route Bestiary presents a collection of creatures found across the interconnected Silk Routes-- from the far east in Japan to the far west in North Africa and from the northern lands of Siberia to the islands of Southeast Asia, and all the lands in between. The rich and colorful images juxtapose the travels of animals with their human counterparts and include descriptions of the animals, routes and journeys.

“Singular & Serial: Contemporary
Monotype and Monoprint”

by Catherine Kernan & E. Ashley Rooney
with Laura G. Einstein & Janice Oresman

Schiffer Publishing, 2019 


“Recent prints from more than 70 top artists across the US demonstrate what monotypes and monoprints offer to artists and the broader world of art. With their backgrounds in curating, collecting, and art history, Einstein draws us into the history and traditions of the forms, and Oresman writes as a collector about the fascination of monotype as a magically spontaneous process.”

“Twenty-two Horses, Stags and Bison”

by Valentina DuBasky
Abingdon Square Publishing, 2017 


Twenty-two Horses, Stags and Bison presents a collection of DuBasky’s totemic creatures that are pitched on the edge of abstraction. The paintings can be read as animal, abstraction, landscape or still life, and at the same time, explore the correspondences between ancient art and the contemporary imagination.

“The Cambodian Journal: Drawings 1994-1998”

by Valentina DuBasky
Abingdon Square Publishing, 2009 


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.
