Ella Kruglyanskaya, Keep Walking, Installation view, Bortolami, New York, NY, 2021

Both a mantra and a quip, the title of Ella Kruglyanskaya’s first exhibition with Bortolami Gallery, Keep Walking, arms her trademark protagonists as they confront their audience with unabashed femininity. Drawing attention to the heightened plots of female sexuality and its mundanity alike, Kruglyanskaya’s painted bodies reenact and subvert the womanhood canonized in traditions of western painting and in visual culture, infusing gendered tropes with her brash and comedic approach to representation.
