Ekaterina Popova was born in Vladimir, Russia. After moving to the United States, she pursued her passion for painting and received a BFA from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. Her work has been exhibited in national galleries, a few of which include Uforge Gallery, The Painted Bride Center, The Boxheart Gallery, Chris White Gallery, Buckham Gallery and more. She has also been featured in publications, including The Artist Catalogue, Studio Visit Magazine and the cover of Ivory Tower Journal, Delhi, India. Ekaterina is a national artist member at A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.
Ekaterina explains the work by saying, “My fascination with the idea of home started at a young age after my move to the United States from Russia. Since that moment, I have been involuntarily clinging to old photographs, images, magazine cutouts, and books that remind me of my old life. I now combine these elements and found imagery to create fictional spaces in which my separate cultural experiences can coexist. My paintings fuse my memories with scenes from my current environment. As a result, the domestic spaces and still lifes feel at once strange and familiar.”
