The drawings belong to two related series, first of which I describe thus, "'Exiled from Truth: Nine Allegories by Dmitry Borshch' is the title under which some allegorical pictures are collected, possibly more than nine: the series continues to develop. They are united by color, style, and technique, so I view them as a homogeneous collection of drawings. Allegory, drawn or written, is a product of that mind which regards truth as existing-in-absence: it does exist yet is absent from our view. Allegories like mine would not be needed if truth were openly present." The second series is called "Iconography". Inspired by prints after Anthony van Dyck’s drawings which collectively bear the same name, it includes portraits of living artists, writers, politicians, distinguished soldiers. Together these series reveal one artist's journey from allegory to engagement with contemporary, and often political, matters.
