Zhanna Tsytsyn makes painting and mixed media works that merge themes of identity, introspection and transformation. Appearing both ethereal and visceral, Tsytsyn weaves together moods, motives and narratives to depict figures who reflect and dream, creating their sovereign worlds from the inside out. These abounding visions of unfolding self-actualizations are sometimes sheltered in the solitude of domestic space and other times liberated into landscapes. Influenced by history of immigration, shamanic teachings and cycles of the natural world, Tsytsyn's work excavates the inner dimension to discover an existence where one's sovereignty is in the here and now, sprung from the land itself, all connected as one.
