Kristina Strunkova-Aksentova



My works are reflections on time, I ask myself how important it is for me to maintain the identity of the bearer of that time and culture, the era I belong to, how to strike a balance between sensuality and crude irony, a sense of nostalgia and a pragmatically planned future setting?

I observe that visual memory for me is one of the most powerful postulates of my being.

In my works I turn more and more to the topic of memory. Childhood memories and personal experiences are fundamental markers of my visual discourse. Observations - as the foundation recreated on canvas embodied in a narrative.

I practice materials that I used in childhood, based on water (children in Russia traditionally begin to paint with watercolors).

It’s important for me to immerse the viewer in a special atmosphere, to evoke a sincere feeling of the experience, to point to certain markers of the era, accompanied by a sense of nostalgia and melancholy.
