Polina Barskaya

Working loosely from photographs, Polina Barskaya creates figurative paintings with a diaristic quality. The artist’s work depicts herself and her family within domestic spaces, either in the artist’s home or in various accommodations visited throughout her frequent travels—ranging from Upstate New York to Italy. Combining vulnerability and power, Barskaya’s confessional self-portraits unravel the complexity of life in stories about the human condition.
