Nocturnal Limbo. Artwork made from 4 pieces, which are transformative in sequence. The idea of Limbo came to me during my sound meditation experience when I was dreaming in the place of darkness and visualized people, creatures and souls I could meet or already met. According to belief Limbo is the edge, the place where soul hangs after death before it gets to Heaven or Hell..
Kate Goltseva is an interdisciplinary artist who is exploring feelings, human behavior, and expression. Kate's art is about raw materials and emotions we are made of: love, longing, compassion, hesitation... It is about an endless journey of the Soul, struggling for peace inside.
She shows the complexity of human feelings and behavior through building relations between different artwork parts: behavior of twisted lines, face-expressions, bodies, textures. The intricacy of this relationship is a reflection of the universe construction: small micro details free to group into large parts or to decay.
Kate was born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, and graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture. She moved to the United States several years ago.
Thus she is familiar with different countries and cultures. As an artist and a person, she is researching what happens underneath of all layers people are covered with to protect themselves. She's been searching for what appears, when one takes off all superfluous covers and revives naked and savage beauty of human nature.
In her works, Kate Goltseva goes back to ancestry theme a lot. Human history, social behavior, and subconsciousness are her favorite directions to explore. Kate thinks that in the past, people were more open, hungry, native in their cravings. They were not afraid of exposing the burning energy they had inside, and they were more connected to nature. There was a time before people lost a sense of innocence and became self-contained.
