About the work
Maja Ruznic
Bosnian, b. 1983
Follow

After fleeing the Bosnian war in 1992, Maja Ruznic’s family emigrated to the United States, arriving in San Francisco in 1995. Figures inspired by personal and collective memories, myths, and suffering float in and out of her paintings, emerging from and disappearing into the surface of the canvas. Ruznic likens her painting process to the feeling of trying to remember a dream. That sense of ambiguity is clearly present in the enigmatic worlds her subjects occupy. Ruznic received her BFA from the University of California, Berkeley, and her MFA from California College of the Arts. Her paintings are in the permanent collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, as well as the Rachofsky House and the Jiménez-Colón Collection. Ruznic’s first institutional solo show opens at the Harwood Museum of Art in March 2021.
