Ekaterina Kruchkova, Russian-Dutch artist, living in the Netherlands and France, working world-wide. I find inspiration in my travels around the world.
The millennium was a time of great change in my personal and professional life; I fully dedicated myself to the art and found in this my vocation.
There are two main directions in my work, and they are interdependent.
One results from deep reflection, meditation and expression of emotional and the most elusive moments of my inner life. This gives a character of spontaneity and uniqueness to each artwork. So I create my sculptures, drawings and paintings. Another one is whole impression of everyday life around me, reflected in artistic research in photography.
In photography I use a variety of mediums and techniques, such as aluminum and acrylic; all my photographs reflect reality without digital editing.
In addition, to realize my artistic projects I founded Studio Ekaterina, where I organize various events, including workshops, exhibitions, open days, and so on.
In 2015 I founded and became president of Art Association Treasures for the Future, a charitable organisation that strives to fulfill a triple purpose:
In 2020 I founded art showroom "Art de Guérison" at Nieuweweg 41b, Laren. Here I created a place to come in contact with art lovers and to permanently exhibit my works.
