About myself and my artworks

Oksana Kryzhanivska creates a sculpture of small forms, she uses bronze and is very fond of such eternal material. Her father, a well-known sculptor, is her teacher and mentor. Images for sculptures live in the imagination of Oksana Kryzhanivska, and she tries to embody them into life.

Also, the sculptor is inspired by symbolism, stylization and ornamentation of Trypillian culture, so she uses it in her works. Our ancestors lived in harmony with nature and the surrounding world, and she would like to convey these feelings through the sculpture.

The sculpture of Oksana Kryzhanovskaya, as a volume painting, fascinates with the grace of silhouettes and integrity of images. Oksana's artworks are symbolic, in each she seeks to embody various figures that come to life in her imagination. Through the stylized plastics of the body of a man and an animal, often in a rapid movement upward, the artist conveys sublime states, such as joy, happiness, fortune. Of course, the sculptor sets herself the task of creating a timeless image that appeals not to modern thinking, but to archetypes. Her artworks, despite their active interaction with the surrounding world, still appear closer to the personal space of individual.

Paradoxical logic is present in the sculptures of the author: the more schematic the shape of the images becomes, the stronger the impact is due to the concentration of the spiritual energy turned to the person. The individuality and uniqueness of the master lies in its ability to subtly connect myth and reality. A keen sense of form and special creative courage breathe life into her artworks.

Oksana, creating small chamber works, often in her sculptures combines different materials: bronze, stone, wood.

A verified composition, a combination of textures, rhythms of small details - reveal the world of Oksana Kryzhanivska outwardly simple and clear, but full of secrets and unsolved symbols.
