Bio

Born in 1984 in Vladivostok, Russia, Svetlana Kochergina 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 the Faith, an own illusion every human lives in and combine romantic and skeptical, dreamlike and dramatic, gloomy and optimistic moods. As an artist she is interested by the myth in the metamodern society and her poetic pictures have layers of revelation: political, historical, social, ethical or philosophical.

As for the abstract experiences, it is up to the consumers to exercise their personal sensitivity. Particular culture, tastes, tendencies, prejudices will guide their 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. The point is that Everyone is right.
