Artist Statement

I create works without sketches, as I am interested in self-forming composition as part of the creation process; drawing develops as a living creature, taking new forms throughout the work. Individual elements like the beads, stiches, and lines construct my structures and form my visual language.

In my works, I use automatic writing process which binds the time into the material form. My practice revolves around labour-intensive contemplative practices that navigate my works. I define myself as a process-based artist embedded in the nature and the traditions of my north Russian heritage. Through long running meditative and pagan practices I create objects, installations, books and paintings, all as an effect of time and local surroundings.
