Artist Statement
Was born in Kiev, Ukraine, 24 y.o. The artist is interested in the essence of objects and their connection with the surrounding reality. She analyzes the relationship between the elements of reality, their semantic and visual interconnection, and seeks to explore and ultimately convey the properties of different materials. Her still-lifes present everyday objects as sides of the conversation, color change, texture, light, and shadow. In her works, the artist uses techniques that best match her research tasks. She amazingly mixes Cubism and Cezanne toolkits, combining a planar interpretation of space with its tone-color interpretation. With such treatment of shape and space, the artist reveals the depth of illusiveness, and conventionality of the image. Combining a rational analytical method and a sensual intuitive approach in her work through the image of simple objects, the artist dissects reality, thus exposing its hidden structure and expanding the possibilities of its perception.
