Taymour Grahne Projects is pleased to present 'Time Passing', an online solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based Russian artist Polina Barskaya, opening virtually on January 6, 2021.
Barskaya’s confessional portraits have a diaristic quality to them. Working from photographs, but allowing for artistic liberties, Barskaya depicts herself, her child and her husband within a domestic space. These portraits are either in the artist’s home in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn or in various accommodations visited throughout her frequent travels (ranging from Upstate, NY to Venice, Italy). Mired in quotidian details, each psychological drama is charged with longing, sexuality and self-reflection.
