“It was often hard to tell who held the power and control between the two, and who was learning the essence of being a human in this world.” Viktoria Sorochinski
The artist Viktoria Sorochinski’s work is about people, or rather, the complex relations binding us. Her work explores universal themes connecting us all, regardless of culture or circumstance. Coming from a remarkably diverse background herself (having lived in Russia, Israel, Montréal and now New York) Sorochinski uses the powers of nature, fable and myth to present work that asks us to complete the story, work that touches our subconscious evoking memories, work that makes us feel something.
This series “Anna & Eve” is but one one of several projects worth viewing on her website, where one gets a greater sense of her skill and ideas. For art photo collectors, prints of this series are available from the Edelman Gallery in Chicago. I am a fan of her work, and I look forward to seeing where her talent takes her. —Lane Nevares
