For the Japanese, cherry blossoms are a metaphor for life. Human life is as fleeting, fleeting and beautiful as nature in these 10 days. Another meaning that the Japanese give to cherry blossoms is the beginning of a new life, rebirth, the beginning of beginnings. Author's technique of Olesya Tkachenko. Materials: wool, silk, viscose.
«Olesya Tkachenko is a contemporary Ukrainian artist who works with textile materials, including cotton, wool and silk, to create works of art that are profound in meaning and relevant in terms of imagination. The artist tries to communicate via textiles, focuses on the visual language, conducts bold experiments with shape, texture and image. Tkachenko ‘s work contains the freedom of expression and the flight of fancy. She seeks the latest figurative and technological solutions - from abstract to figurative, from wall to three-dimensional installations.» My textile art is a reflection of my life, feelings and emotions, artistic practices and experiments. I try to communicate through fibers, focusing on visual language, and conduct bold experiments with form, texture, and image. I am looking for the latest visual and technological solutions from abstract to figurative, from plain to 3D installations. I create textile art of natural materials - wool, cotton, silk, and hemp fibers, which resemble a brushstroke, a graphic stroke and line. This is not actually just a piece of tissue for me, it is an art object, and it is my conceptual work, my vision of the world. Olesya Tkachenko was born in 1977.
