In the Gradient

Modern technology enables incredible hair colour effects, which are close to painting. Hair colour is not predetermined anymore; young people are infatuated by these experiments.

The video installation In the Gradient Field by Veronika Rudyeva-Ryazantseva is dedicated to this new texture. The artist seeks natural analogies to her human models.

Graduate of PRO ARTE Foundation's School for Young Artists (2008).

In 2007 she graduated from the Saint Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design specialising in monumental and decorative painting. In her work Veronika synthesises different genres and techniques, experimenting with video and installation and engaging her background as a monumental painter. Rudyeva-Ryazantseva considers herself primarily an artist-observer, interested in the issues of human identification and self-identification, the everyday absurdity and the connection between the past and the present.
