2-TIMES · Art
Maja Ruznic,
The Wailing Sisters
@ CES Gallery 
— 

Depicting a group
of spiritual beings
that emerge from
the dirt to observe
human drama,
transmogrifying
and absorbing
ethereal material
before returning
ceremoniously to
the earth...
’ 

The exhibition: 
Is the first solo
presentation for 
CES Gallery's
residency program – 
an initiative conceived
to support under–
represented / 
emerging Los
Angeles-based
artists, in addition
to providing more
recognition for
the wider LA
art community. 

Maja on ‘The
Wailing Sisters
’: 
“I don't think of
my art in terms of
‘bodies of work.’ 
Everything is
connected and
part of the same
body — there is
no beginning or end.
This group of paintings
is composed of our
ancestors searching
for a home. My job
as the painter is
to give them a home;
a way of existing on
the canvas. ‘The
Wailing Sisters
’ are
a little tuckered out
but they're managing.”
