Galina works with the already existing space of nature and the urban environment, supplementing it with introduced objects, modeling and documenting her own altered reality with the help of photography. The artist explores the phenomenon of variation using the effect of reflection in flexible mirrors that form space within space. Reflections create a sense of augmented vision and transform the perception of landscapes and architectural structures familiar to Russia. The artist works with such concepts as duality and hope.
With the inner desire of a city dweller to break out into nature and the inability to stay on it for a long time. With the dependence of modern man on the urban environment and infrastructure.
Galina is interested in colliding simple things in an everyday situation and finding new meanings and realities in this opposition. To see the ambiguous and contradictory in the simple and understandable.
