Artist Statement

Learning is something I do every day of my life, because knowledge is the greatest treasure. The more I learn about art, sculpture, anatomy, the intricacies of our strange human condition, the more I realize a lifetime would not be enough to comprehend it all. So I do my best taking notes; via my lens, brush and clay.

 

Being born into a family of an eccentric mentally ill mother ( who was also an artist and a professional “psychic” ) and an alcoholic father in Soviet Ukraine set me up with some serious challenges and has made me very acutely aware of my own choices. Despite the rough start I managed to explore the world with excitement and awe and practiced various forms of art my entire life.

 

I try not to worry about the small stuff and focus on what matters to me as best as I can. I love: my partner, nature, growing tomatoes on my Mexican beachfront balcony; sculpting muddy clumps into recognizable shapes of human emotions; arranging oil into imaginary landscapes; seeing people smile and tear up with joy from a perfectly captured moment; leaving something nice for them to remember.

 

I am very happy and grateful about the way my life has finally turned out. And I am glad I have lived through enough experiences which add depth to my work.

My ultimate goal is for my art being the means of helping others.

Sincerely,

 

Diana Luckysova
