VISUAL ESSAY with Anna Mogilevsky

Curated by Varia Serova


Anna Mogilevsky (born in Moscow, Russia) is a Russian-American mixed-media artist. Mogilevsky's intricate artworks are informed and influenced by her deep interests in psychology, meditative practices, and Jungian archetypes. Her studies of the self reflect the multiple roles and interactions between the various aspects of the feminine.


"My work reflects my deep interest in the field of psychology and self-inquiry. As I have gotten deeper into investigating the nature of the self, I have started to see it more as a construction of various interacting parts that can all be observed, decoded and even transformed. I explore these structures through the process of making my work – these parts are playing, collaborating, examining each other - sometimes in conflict and sometimes in love. From another perspective, I am starting to be interested in adjacent fields to psychology such as philosophy, cognitive science and neuroscience, and I am looking forward to seeing how all of this new knowledge comes to life in my works."
