I call my art technique: hand-painted collage. I painted all elements of the work, cut it, and put on 2 nailed together wooden panels. Then I covered the whole piece with the art resin
My art is an interdisciplinary combination of my passion for psychology, poetry and music.
I use painting as a tool to dive deep inward of my psyche and see how it looks from the insight.
I use techniques based on randomization of patterns, unpredictability, and uniqueness. My art is inspired by transpersonal psychology, anthropology, medicinal plants research and meditation. Visualizing my memories of people and other living creatures through the organization of smallest patterns into solid meaningful systems, I investigate the emotional laws of sensual perception.
In the age of machine face-recognition systems, I re-humanizes art as an empathic and intuitive process, reminding us that mirror neurons system of a human brain is more powerful than neural networks. Through memory mapping, based on moments and fragments, she drifts between imagination and communication, conversation and pre-verbal empathy.
My art portrays people in a way they would love to be represented as living souls, not just visual stereotypes. I see my creative mission in not just uncovering the protective layers we use, but dissolving them with a respectful medium-like artistic gaze, understanding the fragility of a human psyche and beauty of a human physical body. It’s not about uncovering the concealed, but showing the actual psychic truth, helping a human soul show up unmasked.
I call the technique I use - the collage. I cut my oil paintings, ink drawings and Ebru marblings and mix them on wooden panels with various shapes. This logically doubles my idea of how we tend to organize the visual fragments of the world into holistic systems, looking for familiar patterns in everything around.
My work is an anthropological research of a sort. We never know exactly what guides our behavior and emotions. Sometimes our belief in what we see is based around stereotypical impressions. The objective vision, when we see the nuances with the help of intuition, is what actually makes us human.
