MARUSCHAK (b. 1961) is a Canadian artist who comes to photography with a background as an art collector, curator, and educator. Intrigued by Christian Boltanski's comment that we will all be forgotten in 30 years, Maruschak's haunting works explore feelings, objects and the journey or movement from presence to absence. Notions of identity, loss, trace, abstraction, repetition and the collapse of time and space dominate.
Exhibiting across Canada, the US and internationally, notable exhibitions include 2018 5th Biennial of Fine Art & Documentary Photography (Barcelona, Spain) , Fotofilmic 2019 (Los Angeles, Seoul, Vancouver), 2019 ERMILOV Centre (Kharkiv, Ukraine), 2020 Turchin Visual Arts Centre (Boone, USA), the Kyiv Museum of History (Kyiv, Ukraine), Copenhagen Photography Festival (Copenhagen, Denmark), and Phoenix Art Museum.
