Melinda Borysevicz, a New York native, received a BFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design (Savannah, GA) magna cum laude. She was an active part of the Savannah art scene for nearly 20 years, with both her painting and her small art school. In 2015, a chance encounter led her to her a small town near her ancestral home in Italy, where she now lives and paints, focusing primarily on narrative portraits and figures.

Inspired by her recent re-connection with her cultural roots, Borysevicz explores the way memory (not just literal, tangible memories, but senses, suspicions, a feeling of connection and familiarity) affects the definition of self and maps our location in reference to “other.” She constructs images as if searching for significance in the places, things and faces that rise to the surface of the mind together in ways that they might not have actually existed, like a dream that feels important, the meaning of which, however, often feels veiled.

Awards received for her work include a coveted Certificate of Excellence in the Portrait Society of America’s International Competition in 2013. Borysevicz is honored to have been selected for the ModPortrait Exhibition at Museo MEAM in Barcelona and Museo Pablo Serrano In Zaragoza Spain, for several years in the annual Woman Panting Woman show at RJD Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York, as well as for shows in Georgia, Virginia, Ohio, Colorado, Texas, and numerous locations in Italy.
