Olga Chernysheva

° 1962

Born in Moscow (RU).

The oeuvre of Olga Chernysheva is formally refined, combining social critique and subtle humor. In this respect she thus places herself within a long Russian tradition of social realism, not to be confused with the ‘socialist realism’ that was the first official doctrine of the USSR. Chernysheva reflects upon the role of the artist in these times of change. Her work examines a turbulent society that has become ever more individualistic, and where the notion of a collective future is rapidly disappearing.
