Janie Darovskikh Curriculum Vitae

If I had been born a scientist, I would be busy contemplating the why of life in a scientific way. But fate has given me art, and in the tradition of my mother, grandmother and grandfather, I respond to the mystery rather than the why of life. In my work, I try to catch a glimpse of the mystery that is within us and everything around us. Children, culture, dance, mythology, the human spirit and the quiet heroic souls of everyday life—these are my inspirations. I use the figure as the vehicle to explore their human visual manifestations. The process involves a constantly evolving search to learn, grow, exchange, feel and create. May the work tell a story of an adventure, a feeling, a dream or a journey.
