Kharkiv Oblast Shapes
Recycled newspaper | 2022
In their Tappan debut, Doinshapes presents “Shapes of Ukraine,” a new series that presents distinct regions of the artist’s native country of Ukraine as distinct, abstract shapes rendered delicately in paper and acrylic. In distilling each region into a unique shape, Doinshapes creates a tactile connection for viewers between the events presented to us via news outlets and the actions actually occurring to real people on the land itself. The beauty and uniqueness of Ukraine is showcased tenderly, with so much feeling for the people who are fighting so hard to keep the land they love.

“The world is so cruel and it acts unfairly to bodies by damaging them, that it can’t be our only reality, there must be something further. Therefore these kinds of shapes, which I use, are a product of my meager imagination about uncharted energy that is in everything behind the physical body.”
