I am a multi-media artist. My work is inspired by my Russian heritage, my past memories, and my unconscious connection to Eastern European mythology. My images represent the conflict between conscious desire and collective human experience. As expressions of the psyche, they are at once fragmented and primordial, chaotic and yet signifying of a deeper narrative lying just beneath the understanding.
As well as paintings and sculptures, I create geometric structures made of burnt wood. These are arranged to allow viewers to walk inside and look around. This symbolizes my personal feelings, the varieties of choices we have in our lives, and the personal discomfort we have in making decisions.
