I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever.
Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and ability to transform to be transformed. In the process of creation I look for the metaphoric image to describe my idea.
Working at the edge of two great cultures (Russia and Europe) has given an enormous impulse to me. A synthesis of those and my personal life experience influence my art ideas, and my work forms in the way of a puzzle. My life stories, colors, emotions like pieces of the puzzle shape an image.
Here you may see my work: stained-glass windows, painting, glass, porcelain.
