An Interview - ​Don't Stop Believing In Yourself with Anastasia Viaznikova

Artist Statement

My art is about the connection between reality and fantasy. Where one ends and another begins, how they are intertwined. I’m trying to capture the exact moment when you are thinking and "floating in the clouds." How necessary and important is this ephemeral and extraterrestrial in ordinary life. This is a description of dreams and borderline states. These are dreams. Why sometimes you need to "disconnect" from current events and withdraw into yourself. With the help of smooth pastel or charcoal lines and textured strokes of acrylic, I try to show exactly the degree of care that will maintain balance. Don’t completely immerse yourself in your fictional world, but also don’t get bogged down in everyday routine.
