Svetlana Kochergina – Russian-French poet and painter, born in 1984 in Vladivostok, currently lives and works in Paris. She graduated from Sorbonne University in Fine Arts and attended the workshops of Académie de la Grande Chaumière.
Her figurative artworks address the notion of Myth, its unveiling or expansion in the metamodern society and combine romantic and skeptical, dreamlike and dramatic, gloomy and optimistic moods. These poetic pictures have layers of revelation: political, historical, social, ethical or philosophical.
The increasing interest in psychoanalysis and the complex human psyche with its traumas, faiths, dreams, memories, illusions can be tracked in the recent artworks. The own myths that every one’s psyche builds about the world. In 2021 series on the background of classical landscapes and portraits, you can see small abstract elements invisible to the eye in “reality”, but inhabiting our unconscious: memories, emotions, energies, pieces of our yesterday version, our deceiving expectations, our moments of insites, sadness or happiness, our blockages and losses. These elements constitute the fabrics of our constantly changing realities.
