ART: Signe Grushovenko

These paintings are both bright AND disturbing.

I don't know if these are meant to be disturbing. But the faces are blank, everything is flat and fractured, it's like the image cannot hold and everything is flying apart. And the patterned background bits that show through remind me of those flash-silhouettes left on walls in Hiroshima. Maybe I just haven't had enough caffeine this morning?
