Artist

    Biography

   I was born, live and create in Tver. My name is Ekaterina (pseudonym Katarina Love) for many years I worked as a sand and light show artist at weddings and anniversaries, this was due to the fact that the IPCC Institute (specialty decorative and applied arts) focused on socio-cultural activities, and this gave way to participation in events, which later formed the basis of my profession. 2.5 years ago, we can say I said goodbye to the profession and began to go in the direction of art, as it was necessary to take time for art somewhere and sacrifice something. The profession was bread and butter, and I even managed to get an award in Beijing at the contest "The 2nd Silk Road & Young Dreams", among 70 contestants (the sphere of sand animation), but this did not make me completely free visually and technically. I want to make my art understandable to people (not just the institutional audience) both conceptually and visually, so that it would be expressive and poignant, sometimes grotesque. The leitmotif of my art is the analysis of human nature, States, relationships, searches, changes, experiences. I believe that if a person has a gift, it is to give. To give in my case is to dedicate it to the souls of people.

Artist Statement

     The General message is the study of the human essence, the soul and its searches, experiments, mistakes. By understanding yourself and society. Man and his soul are integral. he artist shows the meaning of a person's search for self, vocation, love, God, mission, or the absence of these meanings in his works.

     Form of expression - modular (not standard-shaped patterns) canvases, installations, sculptures, media objects, interdisciplinary practices, experiments.

    Technique – the artist chooses transparent materials (thermoplastics, glass, resin, pet) as a symbol of the transcendence of the human soul. The artist integrates painting into his objects in different ways (print, collage, original painting). Painting and object are inseparable for the artist. Painting translates the visual experiences of the artist, and the material animates the object, giving it three-dimensionality.

    Method of expression - the artist creates some sort of allegory, metaphor, conceptual symbolism, and the grotesque. These methods allow you to show binary meanings, unravel connections, and give answers to both the artist and the viewer. Grotesque hyperbolizes reality, exaggerates the visual part.

     I am interested in and can become an insider for creating an object or project in the following components of the human soul (we are not talking about a specific person, this is a general concept of a person): psyche and all its possible manifestations; decomposition of a person's personality; the ability to collect yourself in parts; all essences of a person are interested in bad, good, intermediate, everything in a person is literally everything; fatal human errors; human stupidity; unification of a person, his forms of subordination, non-submission to the system, society; loss of meaning and gaining meaning; split personality structure; internal war of man; not natural and sincere emotions; plastic behavior; going beyond and living in a box;
psychology of an outsider, a winner; personality autonomy; ascetic behavior; deformation of human consciousness; multi-layered emotional experiences of a person; re-creating yourself as a new person; alter ego of a person; drama and tragedy of the human soul, life; human vices;
God-centeredness, denial, seeking, stagnation, lack of will; human degradation; zeroing a person; people as a collective mind;
This is not all that interests me in the human soul, only a small part. In my opinion, God is interested in man as the most complex matter + soul, and I am interested in what is interesting to God. I would like to study such a complex world as the human soul.
