Born in 1984 in Vladivostok, Russia, Svetlana Kochergina currently lives and works in Paris. She graduated from Sorbonne University in Fine Arts and visited the workshops of Académie de la Grande Chaumière.
Her figurative artworks address the notions of myth and revelation in the metamodern society and combine romantic and skeptical, dreamlike and dramatic, gloomy and optimistic moods. These poetic pictures have layers of meaning: political, historical, 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.
