Born in 1984 in Vladivostok, Russia, Svetlana Kochergina currently lives and works in Paris. After graduating from Sorbonne University in Fine Arts, she continues to explore oil painting in all shapes and forms.
Her figurative works address the notion of myth in postmodern society and combine romantic and sceptical, dreamlike and dramatic, gloomy and optimistic moods. Widely decorated with abstract motifs, these pictures have layers of meaning: political, social, ethical or philosophical.
As for the abstract experiences, it is up to the consumer to exercise his personal sensitivity. Particular culture, tastes, tendencies, prejudices will guide his enjoyment. Someone will see in these works the microcosm or the view from other planets, another will say that it is an aesthetic lyrical approach, deprived of any concept, some will want to find faces, landscapes or relate the paintings to music scores.
The point is that Everyone is right.
