YANA KAPLAN

 

             Born in 1984 in Tomsk. Member of the creative union of artists  of Russia.

            I came up with my collage method after long technical searches and experiments, as well as thanks to my extensive travel experience, in which I was deeply immersed in the culture of other countries. It was this variety of languages, customs, habits and stories that allowed me to see the heterogeneity and diversity of the world - and it was exactly the collage that became the fullest reflection of this plentifulness of impressions. For me, one of the most powerful sources of inspiration is the city, its energy and perpetual motion. My works take the form of a study of urban environment: we notice typical urban textures and images in them, we feel the dynamics of the city and its organic complexity. It is important to note that the city acts as a space of both collective and individual experience - this allows each viewer to “recognize” my works, being like a part of a typical city wall, covered with posters and numerous layers of paint. Conveying this versatility and semantic layering is done with the help of my special technique, which has become the result of constant experiments and continues to become more complicated, combining academic knowledge and new materials and methods.

        Often, I'm using prints instead of canvas - photographs taken in various cities of the world; and also, the works contain such experimental elements as threads, nails, posters, special pastes. The texture of my works appears a particularly important artistic and expressive means: it is in various texture layers that the energy, dynamics of the city and at the same time the depth of personal emotional experience are concealed - and all this is the most important feature of my creativity.
