Figurative artist exploring personal motifs through the imagery of bodies
Polina Gazeeva is a Russian-born artist currently living and studying in Hannover, Germany. Most of her works are expressionist figurative paintings often depicting distorted human bodies. The main medium is acrylic paint and ink on canvas, as well as smaller pen drawings. Gazeeva’s approach to the medium is informal and yet very profound. At first glance, the figures look very vivid and flowing, but when looked at closer, one might feel the internal pain or emotional struggles that the figures convey. The works are extremely personal to the artist, and yet the viewers often find themselves relating to them.
