“Complications” by Yana Payusova

My persistent fascination with the inexhaustible diversity of the human experience drives my creative process and conceptual exploration. I oscillate between the microcosms of individual interior life, particularly the peculiarities of personal character and memory, and the macrocosms of family, culture, and society, including hierarchical structures and collective identity. Though my choice of influences and imagery transcends boundaries of space and time, my own cross-cultural existence plays a crucial role in shaping my individual perspective and aesthetic. In my work, I partner powerful narratives with a bold visual language that embraces and incorporates both traditional and experimental art forms. My broad technical expertise in painting, illustration, photography, digital practices, and ceramics allows me to articulate my conceptual frameworks with precision, nuance, and innovation.
