Yana Ushakova

Yana Ushakova

Brooklyn, NY
BIO
An anastomosis is a connection- an opening of tubes, vessels, branches, often used to define surgical steps. It’s also used to define Yana Ushakova’s latest body of work. In her figures she reshapes those bodily pathways in a way that bypasses the male gaze. Inspired by her chemotherapy experience, the painted forms embody survival, restructuring, and growth. She turns her subjects inside out and exposes their vulnerabilities. They are dismantled and realigned to create a self assured other, something disquieting and new.
You will love Yana if: you just can’t get enough of drippy, psychedelic surrealism. Ever wondered what it’s like to watch grey's anatomy on acid?
