Online Open Mic – 2021
Come embrace the fresh and exciting art of Kateryna Repa! Her work brought me into a sense of scientifically examining a magical world, which then invites the feeling that magic is always right in front of us. The combination of shapes, colors, and intricate designs had me absolutely loving it, and I think you will too!
In my works in the field of painting, sculpture and media, I touch on the topic of ecology and the impact of human consumption on it, as well as the types of its consequences for the environment and us.
In graphics, these are different manifestations of the human essence, such as it is, in my opinion, at the given moment of development.
I also touch on the topic of evolution and its manifestations, linking it with technologies and their influence, as well as with possible themes of their manifestation. Therefore, in the project “Evolution” I touch upon the topic of possible teleportation, linking it with rapid development and penetration into all aspects of human activity, creating my own reality one after another and superimposing it on the real world, inviting the viewer to plunge into my alternative reality, in which imaginations intersect my literary works and visual designer of clothes and accessories.
