Born in Belarus,
and now a Slovakia based artist, teacher and interior designer, Sviatlana Psenickova
Krepsky works primarily with acrylic paintings and drawing. Art and in
particular painting which is her life's passion formed her humanistic viewpoint
of the surrounding world. Art became the perfect supporting instrument for her
to communicate with the world in a nonverbal manner. This passion pushed her
forward - from architecture and architectural practice to more humanistic
communication with society. From a young age she has believed, "You can
achieve anything once you want it and visualise it in your mind."
Painting for Sviatlana is a powerful source of
energy and dialogue with the world as well as a research tool for the inner
world where she can represent her feelings about today's problems. Themes such
as people, love and hate, war conflicts, and refugees are confronted in her
art. Her signature painting style combines purposeful colours and abstract
figurative shapes to delicately balance naivety and understated sophistication.
No two pieces are alike, and yet all the artworks have a common thread: colourful
and playful. Using interior design skills, and attention to interior
surroundings, she imagines her work and places it in images of specific
interiors, for a sense of how it will fit.
