Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"This artwork is an interpretation of Carl Jung’s statement: “ Whoever goes to himself risks a confrontation with himself”. Once again there is my favourite element – water, echoed by the idea of a mirror appears. The light breaking through the trees in the background is rather harsh – in terms of its brightness and shape. This is a hint that the “confrontation with oneself” may not necessarily be joyful. There are some autobiographical notes in this work. I was creating pretty dark works right before starting my graduation project. Perhaps, it was a period when I wanted to understand myself better and work certain things through."—Varvara Drobina

This original artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.

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.
