POSTPONED- She Persisted: Julia Dzikiewicz

Overtly political, deeply emotional, and subtly humorous, Julia 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 a resident of 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.
