Yana Filkovsky - Saito
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
My artwork is borne of and intended to convey various aspects of the human experience, in simultaneously universal and individually subjective terms. Whether the medium is traditional or digital, still or in motion, whether the work is strictly visual or incorporates words, and whether the style is surreal, abstract or representational, my work strives to express inner experience with layers of meaning ranging from the perceptual through the emotional/cognitive to the spiritual. I work across a wide range of media which include traditional printmaking and artist books, motion graphics, video and animation, digital photo-montage, as well as sculpture, painting, collage, drawing, and mixed media. Each medium allows me to create work that either expresses entirely different concepts, or similar ideas but in extremely varied perspectives.

"Vertipology," my most recent work, is a series of digital photomontage images which are each composed of dozens of photographs which I had meshed together, distorting perspectives, distances and details, hours, seasons, etc. No such landscapes exist. Those vistas are, rather, depictions of a subjective experience of those whereabouts.

In the artist’s book “Year of the Mad Bird” I alternated pages of free-verse with pages of intaglio & aquatint etchings, some with watercolor, using motifs such as a bird character as a metaphor for a soul, to express subjective abstractions of general concepts, such as “language,” “specimen,” “shadow,” “war,” “elevation,” etc.

These two examples describe what probably appears as wide variety in types of artwork I create, but I think they explain the essence of what all my work holds in common. My hope is that my work would resonate with a viewer regarding their own experience, which may be deeply personal, yet simultaneously universal in its essence. If it evokes a reassuring sense of strange familiarity, or familiar strangeness, in even just one of all viewers, then it has struck that chord.

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 30, 2015, 12:14 PM


I would like to thank you for supporting Yana. 
As her illness was getting worse, she became more difficult to deal with. 
It was very hard for people who love Yana. 
She really fought hard against her illness. I am proud of her. 
I fought Yana's illness together with her as hard as it was humanly possible. I am also proud of myself. 
I also have regrets and I will blame myself for a while, because I'm human. 

Love and art was Yana's life. 
She was beautiful, the sweetest and most gentle soul I have ever seen in my life. 
She cared so much about everyone. And she was strong.
Regardless of how much worse her condition got, Yana kept creating. 
She was such an inspiration to me! I learned so much from her! 
She even helped me quit drinking and she awoke creativity in me. 

Yana used to tell me that I would be a beautiful old man with long white hair and a white beard. 
Some day when I meet Yana again, as this old man, I will thank her. 
Thanks to Yana, I became stronger, more responsible and more sensitive. I am confident about my future.

Some day I will hold events for Yana, such as an art exhibit for a good cause.
I hope to see you there. 

Thanks,
Okapizen
