Mishchenko, Olia
Untitled Untitled
2005 2005

This piece shows a bird’s eye view of a building project. Mishchenko’s rendering of line and use of perspective recalls architectural drawings. Her buildings are imaginative in design, built-up from delicate lines, and covered in brick, which, like cloth, wraps around and across irregular forms in this image. The scene is busy with activity: plans, tools, and materials are looked over and worked by groups of small figures. The tiny, busy workers appear insectile, an aspect which is heightened by Mischenko’s distant perspective of the building.
