Les Panchyshyn: Moving Forward
February 2 – February 11, 2018

Opening reception for the artist with music by DJ EyzOpen: Friday, February 2, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm 
Please RSVP for complimentary admission.

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: SpaceForests and Figuration. Here, the mind is his subject, not so much the organic shapes and forms occupying his canvases.

Les Panchyshyn was born in Novy Rosdil, Ukraine and later moved to Lviv where attended and graduated from the Lviv Academy of Arts. As a photographer and video director, he produced work in collaboration with Ukrainian musical groups such as Pikkardiyska Tersiya, Komu Vnyz, Panchyshyn, Antytila, Vivienne Mort, and Rock-H. Les Panchyshyn has participated in group and solo exhibitions in Ukraine, Austria, Canada, Switzerland and the US. He lives and works in Lviv.

Exhibition hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 12:00 – 6:00 PM.
