multidisciplinary artist from post USSR St. Petersburg, Russia, currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY.
As an immigrant to a new culture, I became deeply reliant on intuition and visual cues. In a state of constant tension, I discovered a universal way to communicate which is ingrained in the fabric of our existence. visual and sensual,.colors shapes and textures, stuff that can be felt throughout cultures and time, on a very human level.
I am drawn to concepts that aren’t logical but ones that drive us as human beings. felling deep within us we struggle to express , like loneliness, desire, disconnect, shame
Using mediums with a long history of human use, like encaustics, oils, and Fabrics as well as hair and found material that comes from earth I’m exploring imagery that speaks to an instinctual place, often using the human figure as a symbol or as the subject of the story.
