Anastasiya Tarasenko

«My pup pineapple finally makes it into a painting.»

Geboren 1989 in Kiew, zog Anastasiya Tarasenko zog im Alter von sechs Jahren mit ihrer Familie nach New York City und lebt und arbeitet seitdem dort.

«I like to think of what I do as social critique; it’s sharp, it’s biting, and it’s aimed at everyone. The images themselves, however, are often pastoral, convivial, and humorous in the way I compose them. This reflects the true dichotomy of existence, that we are all things at once, existing simultaneously with joy and pain, innocence and perversion, etc. It is my self appointed task as an artist to observe and report these inescapable truths, much in the same way a court jester given special dispensation to mock his powerful patrons. But far from being an aloof observer, I’m probably hardest on myself. With the same, harsh bite, I make self-portraits with words and images that sting me personally every day. In a sense, I want to show you, the viewers, that I am complicit too.»
