Statement

Tatiana’s artistic language was formed under a strong influence of her inclination to systematize, her aspiration to find interconnection in everything, and her conviction that such a connection is indeed always present. Past events have a direct impact on our future, and an accidental meeting is hardly accidental. There is an invisible thread running through everything in the world, which becomes apparent in our minds only with time. These reflections contributed to the birth of Tatiana’s philosophy of image search and became the artist’s fundamental concept – everything in this world is connected with the help of lines.

Tatiana’s works are constructed in the language of simple geometric shapes. Such a simplification makes it possible to understand more complex forms and, eliminating the unnecessary, link them into a single composition, focusing on the essence.

Tatiana’s art touches upon various social topics, but in many aspects, it is philosophical. It is a kind of non-judgmental statement of reality, an incentive for reflection, and a multilateral analysis of what is happening.

The artist’s focus is the history of Femininity and its nature. In most paintings, a long-haired Girl appears as a prototype of Femininity. With the length of her hair, the artist conveys Wisdom, which she takes as a fundamental quality. Such Wisdom allows a formed personality to accept and go through any life conditions and circumstances.

There is a single idea going through all artworks – a person’s cognition of oneself, self-awareness, and self-determination in the modern world, reflection on the influence of dynamically changing realities on each of us. The key issues are expressed with the help of the questions:

“How does a person feel in such a dynamic environment?”

“How to value and not lose your individuality in a stormy information flow, constant change of trends and currents?”

“How to recognize and stay in harmony with your true desires in limiting us social, cultural, and moral frameworks?”

Through her work, the artist seeks to induce the viewer to think through simple images and draw the focus of attention deep into themselves.
