I am a Ukrainian-born Canadian artist with BFA majoring in Paining and Drawing from Concordia University currently living and working in Montreal. My art practices are mainly focused on oil painting and ink drawing.
My art is greatly influenced by the social, political, and natural processes that are developing in the contemporary world. I intend to open a dialog with the viewer to discuss issues in the society we are part of. I collect the stories of others that resonate with my personal stories and visualizes them with a metaphoric twist through the prism of a woman’s mind. My paintings refer to complex issues with simple imagery that could be understood by everybody. I am often using personal memories as the entries point into my narratives. While looking deep inside for personal thoughts and feelings, I am reaching out to share with my audience to find common ground with my viewer for mutual understanding and connection. My art becomes an open space for mind-shifting reflections while providing emotional comfort through distant togetherness.
