  • Catalogue Essay

    The abstract artist Yuri Dyshlenko, who emigrated to the United States in the last years of his life, described his method as ‘megametaphorical', when ‘something constantly strives to be something else'.
    At first glance Return to Landscape appears very similar to a landscape; on closer inspection, however, it becomes clear that the work is only an allusion to the landscape genre. The artist uses forms to express non¬material, spiritual substance, applying the most absurd raised forms to phenomena familiar to the human eye.
