Despite immigrating to the United States in childhood, the work of Sanya Kantarovsky (Russian, b.1982) remains quintessentially Slavic. Simple, yet expressive, the artist’s figures are purposefully ambiguous, leaving the viewer to interpret the scene for themselves. A saturated palette of dark colors and expressive forms retain a folkish feel composed of contorted bodies reminiscent of Egon Schiele, and cryptic faces recalling the work of Edvard Munch. Works by the artist are included in the permanent collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C., Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles; the Tate Modern, London; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
