After choosing Vienna as the melting point for her creative working process, the paintings of the artist with Russian roots have been presented in Austrian and International exhibitions. Her works remain in private and public collections. During concentration on a topic she prefers to work in series. She draws inspiration from observing history and reflecting about spiritual, philosophical and psychological aspects of existence, dreams and writings of Nietsche, Carl Gustav Jung, Liä Dsi, Kungfutze and others.
Her techniques are widespreaded – from drawings over collages to abstract and figurative paintings on canvas with acrylic and oil, meanwhile the technique of a single series remains similar.
The main series are dealing with the questions of
– serching for the self s well as a wholistic view of planet Earth as a living organism, water as main ressource and ice as keeper of potential life in the meditative abstract series “inner changing process”
– “natural technology“: studies of human and animal bodies as perfect machines
– technological progress and its implications for the human psyche in the series “cyborgs”
– “war and revolutions” as natural processes in human development towards an optimized society or menace and remaining dark aspects of existence on this planet
