Family, paper by Juliana Bernal Jaramillo

Chess players, Oil on canvas by Katya Granova

Katya Granova works with a variety of mediums, although her practice is gathered around past, history, experiences, and the ways she deals with them. Working with the imagery she has some connection to, like old family photographs, it is her own way to intrude the body of past with her own body presence. Painting becomes the act (or even a dance), between the artist, the work, the viewer and the past.

She is fascinated by photography for that “double glance” typical of the medium, the “already seen” become the “never seen” with a different cut of the scene and with the imagination, where the boundary between reality and fiction becomes more and more confused.
