"Oleh Denysenko is best known for his intricate etchings…his recent works are rendered in a new technique he has created called “gessography”, combines the age-old methods of engraving with gesso and painting." - The New York Times

This exhibition presents the creative journey of Oleh Denysenko through sculpture, printmaking, and painting to the invention of his unique artistic idiom, gessography, created in collaboration with his son Alexander Denysenko.

As far as its core subject matter, gessography is an epic story, told through the language of art, about the eternal struggle between good and evil. The world’s public recognizes these artworks as allegorical narratives of Ukraine’s brave resistance to Russia’s aggression, of the war that is not just a ‘conflict in Ukraine’ but a clash of light and darkness.

OLEH DENYSENKO is a Ukrainian artist of international renown, active in the Polish art scene since the 1990s. He is a holder of over thirty honors and distinctions received worldwide, a full member of the Academic Senate of the International Academy of Modern Art (Rome, Italy), and a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grantee (New York, USA). The core of Oleh Denysenko’s artistic genius consists of the recombination of classical themes, meticulous execution of details, and the invention of new techniques of artistic expression. Oleh Denysenko’s works feature in the collections of the Royal Academy of Arts (London), Royal Palace – Crownprincess Margareta Memorial Fund (Stockholm), Albrecht Dürer’s House (Nuremberg), and various other public and private art collections worldwide.
ALEXANDER DENYSENKO is a film director, art visionary, and co-author of Gessography; a student and former assistant of Oscar-winning director Andrzej Wajda; recipient of twenty-eight international prizes. His internationally awarded short Wonderwall is the world’s first film reshaping the theme of Chornobyl from an emotionally new point of view, without the stereotypical sense of fear and anxiety.
