Painter Iryna Maksymova (*1991, Ukraine) combines colourful domestic settings with exotic, often magic-tinged creatures, whose facial features contort in displays of distress or agony. In Viburnum (2021), Maksymova depicts a vibrant vase of flowers, with her signature four-legged creatures at its base, encouraging the viewer to question humans’ feelings of supremacy over animals.
