A Russian-British artist, I am interested in healing rituals, surrealism around relationships and expressions of unconscious mark making. These various elements merge and change as they reoccur in different forms represented by pure colour, abstract nature of which helps to establish endless metamorphosis. My work makes me feel unsure as to whether I am pushing the painting or the painting is pushing me ( non controlling creative process ). My inspirations are stimulated by ongoing discovery of life's intricacies, transformation, poetry, profound spiritual forces and the duality of the human condition.
My latest work shows an interest in female and male energy, and the ways it is embodied in relationships. In current paintings, fields of colour often form into shapes which tell multiple narratives centred around relationships.

View on my present work
My subject matter is people and the mind itself - its dance in the realms of real and 'unreal'. Our need to dream unjustified as well as logically synthesise, to feel and to think, equally affecting one another. Our relationship to space and our communicative forces deviating from language.
When I reach out and interact with my paintings by observing unintentional or randomly choosing during this process of painting, - I liberate myself from any controlled idea, this leads to various determents and points of meaning if necessary.
In this poetic dance with my creating and allowing accidents to happen, - interaction is going both ways, it could be called as an engagement synergy within organic matter :)
If there is this tension between figurative and abstract, neither one can be excluded - a defined story line in non-defined space, movement, stillness - it all coexists, equally contributing and constantly mutating around the human soul.
