Katerina Belkina


I'm a Russian artist. My work is photos created in my individual way. In addition, I use myself as a model for my creative discourse. My works is one large statement of the seeking human being. I try to show myself as a distant character in different roles, thus putting my own individuality into perspective, while at the same time addressing the viewer. As a modern creature, the woman is turned into a new heroine in the story which is both recognizable and mysterious. I well know and understand the nature of women on some very deep level, as an artist I am trying to explore the woman inside me, and accept my weaknesses and fears. I'm discovering human emotions, fears, hidden wishes, internal processes, and show them through women's point of view.
