EBECHO MUSLIMOVA at Magenta Plains
Through Feb 11th
Ebecho Muslimova is a New York-based artist who makes strikingly graphic paintings and drawings using sense of humor and absurd. The subject of her work is an alter ego named “Fatebe”, who finds herself in various impossible situations. One works features Fatebe as a genie inside a jar of coins, gagged by a stack of quarters. Another, as Narcissus poised over a pool of still water while folded into the angles of a laundry drying rack. Using minimalist, black and white graphic lines, Muslimova uses the female body as a malleable, expressive form, roasting shame and anxiety on a spit. Every curve glistens.
