Albina Yaloza Born in Kharkiv, graduated in 2006 from Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Fine Arts, department of graphic art.
Since 2010 she is a member of the National Artists’ Union of Ukraine. Lives and works in Odessa.
In the whole artistic production of Albina Yaloza, a strong attitude to search for new artistic solution proves that not only can she observe, but also feel surrounding reality.
She has been working the traditional linocut more than fifteen years.
In addition che constantly experiments and finds own original techniques and methods of printing. Her works are minimalistic in shape. They define the semantic field where each individual work is though a specific statement, which is exactly caught up in artistic language.
This is an opportunity to say something about the world and a man without resorting to ordinary narration.
Previous cycle of her works was devoted to the landscape. Nowadays in her works Albina is developing the theme of the material side of sacred objects: the classical Bible stories where the figurative is a projection of real-life objects of worship, with their extreme material side, in particular things which are literally with the accession number.
This is an attempt to go beyond by dipping into a thing to the limit: the material for images are shattered hands and feet of real sculptures from the vaults of museums, churches and private collections like angels, sculpture of Christ and the Virgin Mary on the back side, with supporting structures, which are turned to the viewer, joints and hooks, burnt wood and cracked gypsum. In her future research she is planning to make a synthesis of abstract landscape and sacred objects, therefore placing them out of the sealed environment into a space of landscape.
