About Evgenia Poberezhna

I am a Ukrainian figurative painter.
My journey as an artist began with the realisation that anything else I would be doing - would be worse and I was no longer interested in anything but painting. It was a conscious and mature choice after many years of work as a graphic designer.

Today my work focuses on people. I explore certain moments in life, what they are made of. Gestures, movements, looks, and something else: elusive but tangible and precise, a silence of concentration, an inner contemplation. I am moved by scenes of deep relationships and subtle intimacy. Themes of female nature, family, maturing, childhood. Sometimes I reveal something personal, like my son. Sometimes I am just guided by what I see.

My main means of expression are drawing, oil painting and collage. I do a lot of sketches from life, which is the basis of all my work. It brings me back to a permanent state, in my own unique space and time.
