Artist in Residence: JULY 2018

Yulia Pinkusevich is an interdisciplinary visual artist born in Kharkov, Ukraine. Relocating to the US from the USSR at the age of nine, her world view has been rooted in change. She creates large-scale environments that deal with urban and social systems, addressing the psychology of space and perceptions of our fragmented environment. Formally, the work is engaged with the direct experience of the viewer through perspectival illusion that plays with the subconscious and cognitive understanding of space.

While an Artist in Residence at Local Language, Pinkusevich explored ways of working with aluminum, printing, etching, cutting, and folding. Her site-specific installation will grow over the course of the exhibition.

Yulia Pinkusevich holds an MFA from Stanford University and BFA from Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of the Arts. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including site-specific projects executed in Paris and Buenos Aires. Pinkusevich is currently Assistant Professor of studio art at Mills College. She lives and works in Oakland, California.
