VERA KOCHUBEY

b 1986 Moscow, Russia. Lives and works in Berlin.

I believe.

ARTIST STATEMENT

I believe in transformative powers of art and this is why I like to challenge the viewer with symbolism and questions that might invoke curiosity and reflection.
I also believe in the spiritual role of art and the spiritual role of an artist being a priest of the collective unconscious.
I believe that spirituality of Self can be the key to the global changes and transformation of the society we live in.

Some words that describe my inspiration sources and give a hint to understanding of my paintings :
Psychoanalysis, mind studies, philosophy and cultural studies, interest in practical magic and traditions of european mysticism, alchemy, chaos magic, tarot cards and kabbalah, Bible, archeology of knowledge and modern philosophy, cyber reality, techno scene and electronic music, neo tribalism, Berghain subculture, technology, Matrix, futurism of the 90s, aesthetics of the 90s movies, 5th element, cosmic spirituality.
