My fascination with the idea of home started at a young age after my move to the United States from Russia. Since that moment, I have been involuntarily clinging to old photographs, images, magazine cutouts, and books that remind me of my old life. I now combine these elements and found imagery to create fictional spaces in which my separate cultural experiences can coexist. My paintings fuse my memories with scenes from my current environment. As a result, the domestic spaces and still lifes feel at once strange and familiar.
