Ewa Boguszewska

I Will Show You Fear In A Handful of Dust is a presentation of paintings by Ewa Boguszewska (Studio 0-132) based on previous research focusing on the material of gold and ash.

Recent works were created mainly with natural ash collected at different times and areas. Its substance has a great potential as a painting medium. It covers the range of greyness from almost whiteness of material consumed by fire to the black shades of unburnt pieces. The dormant energy of these remnants has a chance to be active again. The usage of ashes remaining after the burning process is a gesture of manifestation. Vestigial material is not eradicated but moved and gains a new character. At its end it reaches the turning point: from the place of destruction it turns towards creation. Ashes carrying the particular memory of the past emerge in the new images.

The title of the exhibition comes from T. S. Eliot’s poem titled The Waste Land. It refers to the main voice heard about the destruction of the post-war landscape.To face loss and find respite in spite of what we see.
