Right to Vote – Solo Exhibit by Julia Dzikiewicz

August 8, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - January 10, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Overtly political, deeply emotional, and subtly humorous, Julie Dzikiewicz weaves feminist parables into immense encaustic wax paintings. Monumental like an altarpiece, they inflame the spirit; illuminated like a tapestry, they give shape to immortal stories. Yet, Dzikiewicz’s work refuses a singular order. Using ancient wax techniques to explore present-day topics, Dzikiewicz is unflinching. She strikes hot, skewering the heart of the difficult issues she addresses, including themes of violence, racism, and misogyny. As an artist in the Arches program at the Workhouse Arts Center, the grief and triumph of the once imprisoned Suffragists serve as the inspiration for her contemporary tales of women who fight for change or the issues that inspire modern activists.
