As a woman who had to grow up in a very patriarchal environment in a migrant family from Kazakhstan, I experienced strong role-based expectations. Very early, I refused to end as a Christian fundamentalist housewife and be condemned to eternal care work. I know that far too many people still suffer from gender-specific, purely socially constructed rules and discrimination in both psychological and physical ways. Among other things, I am therefore interested in different directions, both artistically and sociopolitical. After moving twice in my childhood, I moved to Cologne for my social science studies. For a change of scenery and an environment in which I can devote myself more intensively to art, I moved to Leipzig in 2021.

My work is a combination of organic patterns and forms in a mystic and bizarre atmosphere. Black is usually the ground color in my analog collages for a visual depth and strong contrasts. For reasons of sustainability, I use second hand material as much as possible. In many of my works, I include illustrations from discarded nature and science magazines. Nature and its evolution of infinite types of life and phenomena are a major source of inspiration. The same applies to fashion and always new areas, to which I dedicate my curious enthusiasm. My analog and digital work are often merged and there may be multiple runs as I often cut up and reassemble collages. I find working with paint most exciting when I apply it with a roller, and thus create a mixture of construction and coincidence. Also I like to add all kinds of things such as glass, textiles or other materials, which I find on the street, for example. When working artistically, I try to follow as few rules as possible to be able to work as intuitively and unbiased as possible. Art begins to be interesting for me, especially when absurdities are given beauty. In my opinion, there’s no sense in reducing oneself to a certain style, because for me being an artist is a constant process of change.
