A figure, possibly female, is seated beside a table next to a window. One hand is draped over the arm of a red chair and the other hand cups the side of its face. The table is covered with various fruits and has a vase with daffodils on it. What appears to be a straw hat with a ribbon is tossed behind the vase. The figure’s form is reflected in the green pane of glass to the left of the table.
The Frog and the Rabbit
In the upper center of the painting is the top half of a blue moose, harbouring in its stomach a red rabbit cocooned in an oval form. Below the moose, in the lower half of the painting, is an undulating surface of red and orange that covers a black void. In the middle is a large crevice or opening, into which a frog has escaped.
The painting depicts 5 men: 2 large and 3 small. One of the larger men crouches in the lower left corner with his arms outspread. The second of these men, drawn with a bird’s head and wearing the same short skirt of red overlapping leaves as the first man, floats with his arms widespread towards the moon (sun?) in the upper left corner of the composition. Both men’s bodies are shown as if X-rayed. the three smaller men are merely schematically drawn and float throughout the upper composition. Below the larger man (center) is half of a conifer tree painted turquoise, a colour Beardy reserved for a link between the spirit and actual worlds. The painting is predominantly of earth tones, which agrees with Beardy’s assertion that all beings come from Mother Earth and should be coloured to reflect that principle.
The centrally composed image shows an oval form, possibly a turtle’s shell, with 10 bird-like legs escaping from its edges. In the central part of the oval are round egg-like forms. The image is of warm earth tones, a brown and red oval placed on a yellow ground.

Tawny (York Mills)
Study of a forested hillside. The forest floor is tipped up at a severe angle to compress the sense of depth, emphasizing the two-dimension quality of the painting's surface. The mix of earth, fallen leaves, and snow is created with large, swirling brushstrokes. A tree trunk has been placed right in the middle of the composition, extending from top to bottom. The solid strip of brown separates the composition into two equal-sized rectangles and further emphasizes the flat and abstract qualities of the painting.

The Second Eve (Annunciation)
Mary and the Angel Gabriel represented naked as they are the Immaculate Conception. Mary is asleep on a bed. The Angel Gabriel holds a white lily which is the traditional symbol of ever lasting life and a stand in for Mary. The Angel Gabriel is androgynous and the eyes in his wings see everything and everyone. His pointing finger references Michelangelo's creation of Adam - the Gift of Life. The unrealistic colour depicts a separate dimension existing simultaneously in the same space. The Diet Pepsi can on the headboard is the ubiquitous nature of a teenager. Pepsi is of course the drink of the new generation. The time, 11:59pm as it appears on the clock on the headboard is significant because it is the end of one day and the beginning of another.

Two couples, too large for the scale of the buildings and islands, appear to be searching for something or someone. There is a woman stranded on a small island directly behind the tall ship. Waves are crashing against the shoreline of this island and she is in an agitated state. A small boat with six occupants can just be discerned in the water coming to her resuce. The background is flat, without relief, and shows a blue sky, brown mountains and a green tree line.

Two men - the artist’s husband and son- diving into a lake
Two figures: to the left in red is the Angel Gabriel and to the right in blue is the Virgin Mary. Gabriel looks directly at Mary and gestures with his hands. Mary’s gaze is averted, downcast. In the style of Byzantine icons, the gowns and drapery are painted in a stylized manner, whereas the faces are much more detailed. The halos are in gold leaf in relief. The background is painted gold with applied mesh over top. The background is sparse with Cyrillic writing and a depiction of a Byzantine basilica. The imagery carries onto the well of the frame, with a host of blue-draped angels in various positions witnessing the event. The outer component of the commercial frame remains plain.
The icon is a replica of a Carpathian icon from the Presov region, Ukraine. Influenced by Carpathian idols, the central composition of Christ on the cross with three women to his right and three men to his left, presumably these include the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdelene and St. John the Baptist. In the background rises a simplified city scene with churches prominent. Two angels in roundels continue the symmetrical composition at the top of the panel. The work is supported on panel and all non-painted areas of the work are sheathed in copper inlay, built up of small rectangular and square pieces of the metal fused together. The frame is hand-fashioned, simply constructed, the outer component painted.

Ritual of the Sausage
An elaborate pseudo-religious/social feast is taking place set in a windowless environment. A macabre celebration or wake, this grotesque fantasy is overwhelmed with the symbolic complexity of the carnal, precarious nature of humankind. The cycle of life and the realization that all living things consume other living things is presented. Death is forefront, holding a knife. Strings of sausages become fetish objects. They are food, rope, halo, faeces, clothing, phallus, ritual instruments and playthings. The dissonant ritual group, nun, crook, prisoner and butcher with knife and pail perform. The sausage trio turns round and round with a black bird. The female prisoner with shaved head is bound and blindfolded, representing another victim. The four handmaidens attend and service the reclining female figure. The older woman kneeing praying on her beads is straddled on the head by a white bird squawking at its black companion across the room. The two birds frame all the variations of light and dark that existing in the human pysche.

In the background, the Soviet embassy is depicted as a white block with trompe l’oeil trees painted on at least one side, suggesting Kurelek’s lack of trust for the Soviet diplomats. Arising from, and contained within, the white block embassy is an iron cage containing, it is presumed, Valentyn Moroz. The image on the side of the cage depicts the scales of justice weighing on the side of Soviet Communism (the hammer and sickle) rather than itself (a smaller version of the scales of justice).

Against a painted background of ancient runes and modern symbols, the artist has illustrated cuttings from magazines and newspapers documenting what he understood as “false idols” of 1960s society: political ideology, extraterrestrial life, mind-altering drugs, astrology, spiritualism and pornography. Formally, this work is structured through two contrasting grid-like arrangements: through the loose haphazard placement of ephemera over top the tight isomorphic blocks, each containing a different rune or symbol.

To the right is the stove with the pot of borscht boiling over. Seated in the centre, is the artist, wearing a maniacal smile.
In the upper right corner of the painting, there is a reference to the work by master Ukrainian painter Ilya Repin (1844-1930) of the Zaporozhian Cossacks of Ukraine who are writing a letter to the Turkish Sultan (circa 1878-91). Directly underneath is a pair of woman’s legs splayed open for the birthing of watermelons. Below that a housewife with her eyes removed presents her perfectly cooked turkey. The artist inserts her own image into the work, located approximately half way down on the right side. She stares out at the viewer with a worried expression while clutching a Kozak-Mamai doll with a moustache.
