Katushka explores the relationships between time, the process of aging, personal feelings and humor. She uses her paintings to tell stories of the beauty we can find in an old rusted object, like in “The Forgotten” series. She’s inspired by planet Earth, by the power of women, the colors of nature, and all the stories that make us humans.
“For me nature is an inexhaustible source of inspiration. I’m fascinated by skies, vast lands and the presence of water. Having been an observer for many years of traveling, I have accumulated an enormous bank of images that are accompanied by sweet memories not only of happiness, but solitude as well.
I’m hoping to create a poetic and magical moment that reveals itself in massive quietness, through the absence of obstacles, and the presence of boundless land. My goal is to have the viewer bear witness to, and be absorbed by, the scene – a scene trapped in time of sounds and breeze, of light and shade, of movement and repose.
The works I’m showing in this event are inspired by hikes, photographs, and the visual observations made when experiencing my surroundings. These paintings are the result of direct observation; a complex combination of natural elements and the recollection of the emotions that I felt observing those scenes.”
