'Chandelier inside Kiyomizu temple in Kyoto, Japan' (2019) This image is part of a series of 13 photographs titled 'Japan: imprints on my soul.'

The sites depicted in this series are temples located on Miyajima Island and in Kyoto, Japan. WABI-SABI 侘寂 ‘The quintessential Japanese aesthetic. It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things unconventional.’ Leonard Koren ‘Wabi-sabi for artists, designers, poets & philosophers’ PRINTS Each print is a fine art C-Type printed on Fuji Matt paper, is hand signed by the artist and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

ARTIST STATEMENT As an artist, I view myself as a surveyor of liminal topographies. At the heart of my practice is an associative process that’s inherently autobiographical and is continuously propelled by my subjective sensations. I mine the raw materials for my works from both, the quotidian and threads of memory. And thus, time and space are ongoing protagonists in my artistic inquiries. Liminal space is an unnerving ‘w/holy ground’ of epistemological reckoning that can be denoted - within physical, mental, or emotional contexts - as an ‘in-between- space/state’ of disorientation and ambiguity. Liminality can be experienced whenever a referent is temporarily obscured or removed from a familiar context. Liminality, with its multifaceted disguises, constitutes the thematic focus of my art practice. Topography is defined as a process of mapping – creating visual representations - of specific characteristics pertaining to an environment, or structural entity. It is this sculptural aspect of my practice that incites my intent probing of materiality within traditionally atypical mediums of photography and text. The resulting works contemplate on liminal dimensions of a contemporary human experience. BIO Tatiana was born in Poland in a heavily industrial region that had been ravaged by environmental damage and pollution – it was a place where beauty was shrouded in raw, brittle layers of imperfection. During her adolescence, Tatiana witnessed post-communist upheaval and rapid shifts in popular culture as the East was beginning to embrace the West. In her early adulthood, she moved to the United States where she became drawn to the fine arts and started working with mixed media paintings and collages both within the context of formal and informal education. After building up a sizeable body of work, she began presenting in solo and group exhibitions within the Chicago metropolitan area. Concurrently, Tatiana became fascinated with depth psychology and in particular its painting and drawing processes of capturing spontaneous images that carry an implicitly personal narrative. In 2011 Tatiana took a 5-year sabbatical during which she moved to Switzerland and started pursuing photography as her new medium. Today, her photography work has developed to the stage where she has begun showing her images to audiences at large.
