Katia Lifshin - Parallels
Katia Lifshin (b.1993) is an Ukraine-born Israeli artist. Katia relocated to the U.S in 2012 to study painting and sculpture at Pima College, Arizona. Returning to Israel in 2018.
In her practice, she focuses on themes such as dreams, identity, self-image and memories. She paints dreamlike worlds of naive teens and young girls. Her distinctive blue and green colour palette creates a different reality, in which there is room for surreal elements, and that focus’s attention on the characters' feelings. Full of symbols like checkered floors, spirals, and dogs being tamed, she represents the compulsive thoughts by which everything has to be in order, distant from its original shape and purpose.
