Limited Edition Print- Kon Trubkovich, Untitled, 2016
New York-based artist Kon Trubkovich mines a combination of found film footage and home movies from his childhood in the USSR to create his paintings and works on paper. Through a process of isolating, fragmenting, and enlarging, Trubkovich has developed a unique visual vocabulary for exploring his own history and more universal aesthetics of memory. He explores themes of rebellion and autonomy in paint- ings, drawings, photographs and sculptures based on still images from videos. His sources evince his preoccupation with incarceration, and include footage from the Attica prison riots, the Stanford prison Experiment, the russian island of Sakhalin, and numerous other clips found on the internet. Kon Trubkovich is represented by Moran Moran in Los Angeles, the United States and he has exhibited at Moran Moran in Los Angeles (10 November 2018 until 22 December 2018) with the exhibition OBJECTS TO IDENTIFY.
