Part of The Artist's Life series

This passionate and socially conscious artist thoroughly engages us in reflections on art, history and the process of painting. Inspired by her Ukrainian heritage, she explores cultural identity, political change and gender and consumerism through reoccurring personas representing herself or historically relevant figures such as the "young girl from Chernobyl", around which the rest of the painting develops. Her innovative imagery is dreamy yet unusually present, expressing a subconscious unease of the human condition. Sources of inspiration vary from miscellaneous photographs to Harlequin book titles she subversively illustrates. Natalka Husar's need to express ideas in new ways drives her work and she believes art can make a difference by helping us see the world. Her message to artists is to take chances and avoid comfort zones.
