GRINEVART / Artists / Veronika Ivashkevich

Veronika Ivashkevich is a graduated restorer and  a very bright figure of the art scene of St.Petersburg.

Here is her artist statement:

Intuition guides my artistic practice. For me, it’s necessary that I interpret and decipher my work for the viewer. Contradiction is the nature of my artistic action –the material itself and the technique determine the themes for the future project. For me, what’s important is not “what”, but “how” – the medium is the message. I try to capture the beauty of interference and accidents that arise in the process of material resistance, and deliberately . Art school is everyday life. A combination of volumetric objects and graphics make up each of my projects, sometimes veiled by digital distortion.

The synthesis and contrasts between natural and artificial, disappointment and hope appear to pique my emotions at this stage of my journey. I try to follow my own interests, and I believe that this resonates with the viewer. The driving force of my process, however, is my struggle with my own fears.
