Maja Ruznic [b. 1983] is best known for her small-scale watercolors that explore themes of violence, abandonment, and despair. Her subject matter stems from her childhood experiences. At a young age she fled her native country of Bosnia to the United States, experiencing the traumas of war and displacement firsthand. Drawn to the unpredictable nature of ink and watercolor, Maja utilizes the medium as the driving force behind her subject matter. She captures these emotions through her application of color and form, intentionally creating discomforting moments in her paintings. In Maja’s own words, “Unmasking the psychology behind familiar and often frightening experiences is a central impetus for my work. Through a personal and intimate scale, combined with my dedication to material and the use of white space to frame the interior landscape of my characters’ dilemmas, I create a powerfully honest and raw aura of vulnerability.” As of 2015, Maja has been experimenting with large-scale oil paintings that successfully capture the same emotions that are central to her small, intimate watercolors.
