“Family Tree”
The haunting sculptural dioramas by artist Stanislav Ginzburg, emerge slowly and then deliver a powerful emotional punch when examined carefully. These ghostly porcelain works are inspired by vintage illustrations of animal anatomy, Frida Kahlo’s paintings, and blossoming nerve structures to name a few. These delicate arrangements resemble forgotten scientific experiments that could have been discovered in an abandoned laboratory, but instead of being stale artifacts, they resonate with emotion. Ginzburg creates work that is coming from a personal place. Some depict the artist’s family photos, which are mixed in with references to the archaic medicinal practice of bloodletting, reminding us of delicate balance of this fleeting life.
