Hello frends! 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 abi... [more]

Five thousand women are murdered annually by their fathers, sons, brothers, or husbands in so-called honor killings. Or at least that’s the most widely cited number, derived from a UN estimate in 2000, the last time an official study was done. The real number, according to experts like Jordanian journalist Rana Husseini, who has covered the subject for over 20 years, is likely much larger. Honor killings are often considered an internal family issue; they’re a highly sensitive topic, a... [more]
Project "Current state" represents an archive of personal belongings of the artist through photographs. Taking object created in the process of mass production, is a general act which is characteristic of the process of creating personal collection.

This work is based on collecting various damages of skin, of people who are in some sort of contact with the author. In this way, through photography, and brief notes of the same, I have done the archiving process of human skin as portraits through rejecting any kind of emotion.

Recently exhibited at Harlem School of the Arts' freshly renovated Gallery Space, Fabiola Jean-Louis' Rewriting History is an interdisciplinary series that serves up a ride through antiquity and imagination. Modern period dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges notions of reality, time and space. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the artist creates a world that embodies an alternate past where people of color might have live... [more]
Lee Godie, pronounced “go-DAY.” She was a French Impressionist; her portraits and still-lifes were “better than Cezanne.” Or so went the sales pitch from her habitual perch—and erstwhile studio—on the steps of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Living on the streets, sleeping in the park, sprawling out on the floors of local libraries to draw, using a supermarket as an informal bank, Ms. Godie has become one of the most recognized Chicago artists, perhaps because for a while she... [more]

The relationship between a figure and its landscape context can be powerful. Landscapes are often presented as pristine places, without human presence. However, figures within landscapes can play dynamic roles as scale elements, protagonists in a narrative, or mysterious presences. Sometimes figures can ask more questions about a place than they can answer. For this exhibition we seek photographs that extend beyond documentation of place to bring a human element into the natural or urban landsca... [more]

Through paintings, photographs, film and 'curse tablets,' artist Sienna Reid explores the Italian murder case that transfixed the world
Sienna Reid's whimsical apartment in Rome's ancient Monti neighbourhood has morphed into a tantalizing cultural testament to Amanda Knox, the American student who was convicted, and later acquitted, of the murder of her British roommate in Perugia, Italy.
