Khatuna Petsyukha is a local artist based in Dublin, working primarily in oil and mixed media. This exhibition represents the ever-changing character of nature, cityscapes and us, the inhabitants.
A dedicated life watcher and an intrinsic explorer, Khatuna’s true passion is about researching and reflecting on the surrounding space, people and elements, noticing all the details and feeling the colours, shades and ultimately the light.
Could something be as simple and at the same time as complex, as light? We can see it, yet can’t touch. We may not even notice it during the day but we quickly realise when it’s gone. Sun, moon, clouds, natural surfaces and man-made objects – all together generate, reflect, cast, absorb and share light. Shades, colours and glare around us are purely magical. Isn’t it worth getting on canvas? The very present moment will never be repeated. And the light allows us to see it as is, fully and clearly.
Khatuna had moved to Ireland in 2016 and graduated from NCAD in 2021, though she had earlier collected degrees and certificates in art, music, medicine and psychology. Khatuna has been working as a professional artist since 2014. She is a professional member of Visual Arts Ireland, Greystones Art Group, Dublin Art Society and Signal Arts Center. Her works can be found in private collections across Europe.
