My name is Kate Goltseva and I am an interdisciplinary visual artist.
In my art I try to show complexity of form, which resonates with complexity of human soul. Building relations between different parts: twisted lines, colour combinations, matter, textures. The intricacy of this relationship is a reflection of the universe construction: small micro details free to group into large parts or to decay.
I was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, and graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture. At the age of 22 I moved to NY, where I continued my studies in SVA and Grand Central Atelier.
Thus I am familiar with different countries and cultures, I believe that we all are made of same matter and core. As an artist and a person, I am researching what happens underneath of all layers people are covered with to protect themselves.
I’m working on emotion dissection. That’s why I am mostly focused on portraits. I like to mix realistic painting with surreal abstract environment I bring faces I draw into. For me, it is like capturing the mood, the feelings I have about my models, the thoughts I see in their eyes.
