Born in 1988, in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Ksenia holds a master’s from the Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts. In 2008, Ksenia was elected to the youth association of the Union of the Artists of Ukraine. From 2012 onwards, she holds membership in the National Union of Artists of Ukraine. Born into a family of artists and intellectuals, Ksenia is a promising artist whose works capture the imagination through her resourceful manipulation of themes, borrowing from epics, odes to nature, myths, history, and emotive narrations of the daily lived experience. Despite the richness of metaphors and subtlety that inform her work, they are not cluttered by occult references and retain a youthful and joyful freshness.
In search of an illustrative series, I had the opportunity to combine different images, which often appear as separate parts. The appeal of mythology, folklore, the grotesque, Eastern poetry to me are all reflected in my paintings. I am interested in mixing, melting colors and experiments. In the works with the images of fish, birds intertwined with trees, I capture the experiences of them in this space and time. In my works, I investigate the aspects of the relationship between man, time and space in terms from a philosophical point of view. The difference between languages in my works, however depends on the mood, a variety of symbols, alchemy, and other topics come in shifts… The colors are abstractly defined but has symbolic meanings.
Rethinking the origin of myths and interpretating allegories is also my way of creating. I like to work on the ideas of my own imagination, while using the analogy of photos to execute my ideas with collage, I use art as a mean to convey my imaginations.
To emphasize the “eternal” themes in the work, some works lack very clear and specific characteristics, and the form of works are devoid of symmetry intentionally. I create my works with oil on canvas, mixed media, etching, linocut, graphics and pastel, I also express myself with photography and experimental art. I hope to express the color I have in mind with the multilayers on the works. My everlasting yearning as an artist is to create in the two dimensional world, numerous fantasies and ecstatic universes.
