Julia Smirnova

"In my artistic development I have a photographic background. My photographic practice consists of finding the still life in a natural landscape. Part of the process is, that I observe a situation until an image is formed from what I find. Intuition helps me understand when I have found the right motive. This approach influences my further artistic development. For some years now I have been working on three-dimensional objects, drawings and audio still lifes. Just as I search for the right image in photography, I crochet on my copper wireworks until the right composition intuitively comes together. The drawings are small sketches that tie in with the theme of the theme of the objects and mainly arise unconsciously, as I am engaged with other activities parallel to drawing such as listening and looking.”
