Katia Lifshin (b.1993) is a Ukraine-born Israeli artist. In her practice, nature is a recurring theme and point of reference. Unconventional natural phenomena – such as bioluminescence or spiral tree trunks – find their way into her surrealist world, which is both inspired by everyday life as well as psychedelic experiences. The works also express a constant shift between light and darkness as an artistic interpretation of constantly-shifting emotional states. Lifshin’s work oscillates between the human and the non-human, connecting human experiences and their natural environments. Her feminine figures search their ways in the world, using their physical and mental flexibility to break boundaries and defy exterior and interior limitations.
