Recommended by Paige (Collections Manager): "Oleksiy Fedorenko creates wildly enigmatic etchings, and I treasure them all. His works are full of absurdity, whimsicality and subtlety, and yet are so clear - exactly as he describes them. In Person with Bell, there is certainly a person and a bell, but the title is comically reductive. He even writes the title in lovely script in the plate. But he fails to mention that the person seems to have four eyes, there is also a person with towering hair, small castles in space, and floating, glowing microbes or generally unidentified squiggles. It's human yet fantastical and otherworldly. I haven't the slightest about when or where this scene is from, but I'm captivated."
