STATEMENT

Predominantly I work in painting, also collage, sculpture, video and installation media. Academic education allowed me to use the technique of realistic painting, so the rest of the media is also used by me as part of the study of hyper-subject matter. Some works are close to symbolism and conceptualism, specifically reflecting mental and emotional processes, as well as hyper-realism of the 90s. Also my art can be attributed to a New Sincerity, although some projects are not devoid of irony and sarcasm.

 

I was influenced by Aidan Salakhova, Erik Bulatov, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Louise Bourgeois, Maurizio Cattelanand others.

 

Main theme of my researches is the digital reality and post humanism discourse - I'm interested in the topics of utopian wishes, insights, desires and new social relationships, digitalization and man of the future. In some projects, there is also a feminist motive, but this is not the main one.

 

From 2015 I am working on the topic of digitalization, which was presented in the self-portrait Projection presented in Aidan Studios at Winzavod(Online / Offline exhibition), in the Renaissance 2.0 project at the personal exhibition in the OmelchenkoGallery in 2018 and the new EDEN series from 2020.

 

Theme of insights was realized in painting and photo series named Let Me Go. There was the white cloth that hides the figure of a man who grabbed the material from the inside. Today I’m working with insights issue again in my project Red Line – painting and total installation. 

 

Sistem. Anabiosis– research of post humanism discourse, creating a situation where a person is replaced by anthropomorphic characters, and the system created for human comfort loses its functionality, retaining external recognition, also was shown in Aqua Art Miami in 2019.
