Yulia's artistic methodology is deeply anchored in the practice of direct observation. She perceives the process of translating a physical, three-dimensional object onto a two-dimensional surface as an act of abstraction. It requires artists to distill and condense, ultimately conjuring the optical illusion of depth on a flat canvas. From her perspective, this act of artistic transformation transcends temporal constraints and the limitations of spoken language. Images become a universal language, delivering poignant messages that resonate with viewers across time and cultures. These messages are often emblematic of prevailing beliefs and the evolving societal landscape, offering profound insights into the dynamics of power during the era of their creation.
