The Art for Ksenia, in its process and result, is, above all, healing.
Healing for herself, as it brings to light her inner world and gives it a
voice. Healing too, at least in her purpose, for those who observe it.
For those who feel it. As far as it goes...
Ksenia works mainly with acrylic and marker on canvas, in some
occasions introducing embroidery on it. She also uses a collage
technique on canvas, wood and paper.
The world of her imagery reflects artist's deep interest in the
mythology and spirituality of the ancient worlds, in the cultures of
native civilizations, in the world of subconscious, that keeps the
memories of the cultural archetypes and the realm of the dreams.
We all are keepers of the connection to the Cosmos, to the Nature,
and the archetypes are in our very DNA. We are swimming and
flying in a universal, collective and ancient space of information and
memory. And everyone catches something particular in this vast
informational field, be it through dreams, through some sudden
insights, feelings, meditations or through the creative process.
Artist's own mythology is full of fantastic animals and beings, men
and women, spirit and matter, suns and moons, earthly, cosmic and
subterranean worlds, the cycles of life, death and rebirth,
interconnectedness of the seen and the unseen...
