About Me

Personal Statement

The origins of Evgeniia’s work come from clinical, yet diverse environment of office spaces and objects that fill them. By exploring the repetitive features found in stationery, computer hardware, architectural and interior layouts of offices, she creates elements that are formed into a grid and morphed into a distorted, more organic shape to represent the organised chaos nature of a typical office environment. The colour palette used in Evgeniia's work – soft, pastel, and at times neutral – are the typical colours used in office spaces. Cube is one of the most common shapes used in the work – it comes from the study of an office cubicle, perfectly arranged personal work environment for an office employee.
The focus of the work lays in the exploration of repetition, movement and manipulation of grids in combination with reiteration of geometrical form. The pieces are created using a wide spectrum of making techniques, such as 3d printing, CNC milling and hand manufacturing. Evgeniia’s work is an ongoing exploration of process and materials and an attempt to find a careful balance between man and machine.
