Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"Looking through my artworks one by one, you can see that the topic of water has been with me for quite a long time. David Hockneys’ artworks pushed me to the plot of diving and resurfacing. This series of works was created in summer, after a trip to the sunny Azerbaijan with its sea, swimming pools, etc. Upon my return to St.Petersburg, the printing workshop at the Art Academy was at my disposal all summer. Seizing the moment, I created these and many more linocuts that summer.
I experimented a little: in the first part of the triptych, I painted the body with different rollers using offset and oil paints (one roller - one colour not to waste time washing the roller after each application). Having built up a paint layer, I sprinkled some white spirit on the surface before using the press to create the effect of splashes and water. This moment is quite spontaneous, so each imprint is unique."—Varvara Drobina

Artist Profile

Born: 1996

Hometown: St. Petersburg

Based in: St. Petersburg

Varvara Drobina is a professional artist born and based in St.Petersburg, Russia. She is currently in her final year at the prestigeous Repin Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St.Petersburg, Russia, where she specializes on the printmaking techniques, illustration and book design.

Filled with countless allusions from various art forms, from cinema to theatre, from poetry to music, Varvara Drobina's artworks are strikingly powerful and have a lasting aftertaste. Decorative without becoming superficial, illustrative without becoming restrictive, they speak at both figurative and abstract levels.

In 2018 she was selected for the exchange programme with Beaux-Arts de Paris, where she studied under the tutelage of Wernher Bouwens and the fresco master Philippe Bennequin.
