With a cursory glance at the work of Stanislav Grezdo, it’s easy for a viewer to place these paintings in the category of “political art,” as the artist employs a bold, Soviet era formal language with ease. However, Grezdo’s practice is not as much about politics or revolution as it is a punk rock kind of disregard for the didacticism and authoritarianism for which this aesthetic was created. The works in “In That I Trust” are indicative of the artist’s practice of internalizing, leveling and reinterpreting the figures and ideologies of Western history.
