Anastasiia Podervianska works in a variety of artistic techniques – on canvas, panels, gesso and glass.For the last four years she has been experimenting with textiles. Her stitched collages combine Ukrainian decorative and ethno-romantic tradition with comic book elements. These qualities give her works a cross-cultural resonance, helping it to transcend the traditional archaic framework. Her works are an attempt to visually reimagine traditional iconographic motifs, transforming them emotionally and lending new meanings to canonical images. The synthesis of traditional techniques and canons with cutting-edge technologies and perspectives give works a new sound.
