Oskar Korsár: No Wind Can Blow Us Down

Oskar Korsár: No Wind Can Blow Us Down at Yossi Milo Gallery. "...In his recent ink drawings, Oskar Korsár creates unique worlds of fantasy and melancholy. The artist begins by creating a series of cross-hatchings on multiple sheets of paper, which he then combines to create large-scale renderings of adolescent female figures in commonplace settings. The young women, with overly long arms and legs, awkwardly stand in the silent interiors of their bedrooms or camp out in mysterious forest graveyards. Typically solitary, the figures are engaged in mundane activities, while the narratives of the scenes are guided by a set of fixations and totems prevalent throughout the drawings."
