Yulia Iosilzon

Yulia Iosilzon’s paintings are unfolding narratives of human-animal metamorphosis, as well as depictions of everyday life and social protests. Encompassing painting and ceramics, the artist’s work draws on Jewish iconography—part of the artist’s heritage—as well as childhood cartoons, representations of paradise, mythological tales and prison tattoos. Iosilzon’s figurative works on stretched silk are portals into vivid dreamlike worlds with roots in both ancient mythologies and contemporary social concerns.
