Lives and works in [TBC]

Through discrete works on paper, installation, and ephemeral projects in the public sphere, Bulawsky explores the relationship between the individual and the larger social body. At the heart of this research is an inquiry into the parity between personal and global narratives and a conviction that these run alongside each other in grooves that are equal in depth and significance. 

The artist says, “My recent work deals with the reciprocal influence of history and memory. I approach this through my experience and knowledge as a printmaker. My current project uses the printed mark as a metaphor for history that is marked by ruptures and continuities of time. I am curating accumulated marks created by the happy accidents of printmaking on sheets of newsprint backing paper, and juxtaposing them with other accidental marks and images, including iconic photos of world events.”
