Born in Bosnia & Hercegovina and currently living in San Francisco, Maja Ruznik work intrigues me. Her paintings predominantly focus on people’s faces. Blurred yet crisp, their eyes are piercingly cool and stoic – reflecting a certain helplessness; perhaps even a cry for help.

Some of her work is founded on her experience as a childhood refugee fleeing from a war-torn country. Her romantic notions soon ended after she went back for a visit 17 years later to a country devastated by the war.
