Kateryna Bortsova

I think art is the confrontation between life and aesthetics. Only a creator can make an art object. Enlightenment philosopher Immanuel Kant said that ‘the artist is a maker with endless fantasy who must create new forms’. Any person may acquire technical skills by practice, but not everyone creates profound work.

Creative PROCESS

I do not divide artworks into genres. I perceive artworks as masterpieces that resonate in the spectator’s soul. Pictures with this profound quality will always be up-to-date.

About
Kateryna Bortsova

Kateryna Bortsova is a Ukrainian painter with an MFA in graphic arts. Her works participate in many international exhibitions (Taiwan, Moscow, Munich, Spain, Italy, USA, etc.). She won the silver medal in the “Realism” category at the “Factory of Visual Art” competition in New York in 2015.

About my artwork

My artistic production is influenced by many genres and historical epochs such as Impressionism, Pre-Raphaelites, and Art Nouveau, but I am also greatly influenced by technology and contemporary life.

Inspiration

My creative process can be classified as a traditional model of production. My creation begins with a mental image. My artistic influences come from film, theater, and literature. The mental image haunts my imagination until I can depict it on canvas.

Studies

2008 – Master of Fine Arts
2007 – Bachelor of Graphic Arts

Artistic trajectory

I consider myself “a perpetual student” because I live to learn. I studied at Kharkov School of Art (1993). Currently, I am studying a postgraduate program at the Kharkov State Academy of Design and Fine Arts.

I believe that an artist creates their own image of the world.
