Sky. Desert. Ocean. All along the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur in Mexico, I was fascinated to watch the sheer raw strength with which the ocean continuously beat itself against the earth. I took my time studying the powerful waves, and the closer I observed them, the more beautiful details they revealed. From the subtlety of color gradation to the rich textures of water in its various forms, each time I return to look at these images - I notice something new... With the 'Baja Waves' collection I invite you to dive in and experience for yourself the energetic life of water.
As an artist with a background in graphic design, I work with a variety of media. My latest projects have to do with careful observations of patterns in space and time, and capturing their implicit significance using photography, drawing and writing. Through my work I explore such ideas as 'relativity' and 'relatedness' between individual and environment, and specifically how they contribute to the formation of 'identity.' My particular interest in concept of ‘time’ began when I was five. I was born in Minsk, Belarus, and was educated in the former Soviet Union and United States. University years at UW-Madison and Columbia College were followed by a decade-long graphic design career in Chicago. Next, modest exploration of acting and self-revealing creative writing courses at University of Chicago led to a graduation from commercial life and a subsequent move to Mexico.
