LESIA MOKRYCKE

As I navigate tension between the poetic motivation behind my work and larger concerns I have for the climate and urban life, I reconsider how these lines are drawn across space.

Each of my works originates from a desire to create spaces of contemplation that bring people into closer contact with the environment.

In my studio work of noting and drawing, photographing and tracing, the body is the mediator between thought and intimacy with the environment. I am guided by the idea that living beings produce the spaces in which they live, and in turn are shaped by these spaces. I create works that explore how a shift in perception can generate a different understanding of our relationship to land.
