About the Exhibition

to be written is an exhibition of print work that explores the traditional Ukrainian practice of pysanky and Ukrainian visual motifs. I utilize lino cut prints to highlight the similarities in modes of working to pysanky, where the work comes through in the deliberation of what is preserved and what is not. It was my intention for this parallel of art and craft to extend to my personal relationship with tradition and heritage. I view these pieces as an unraveling or puzzling out of this relationship.

About the Artist

Elise Futoransky is an emerging artist living and practicing in Edmonton, Alberta on Treaty 6 territory. As of 2021 she graduated from the University of Alberta’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Her work is sourced primarily in printmaking and painting, and she draws on her Eastern European background for inspiration. Her practice often references folk practices, the narrow delineation

between art and craft, and material culture. She is highly interested in the tension between tradition and the contemporary, and as such her practice is not only a celebration of her heritage but also an investigation of how culture is filtered through the passage of time and distance.
