About Oxana Geets
'Genetically being a doll artist, I always create not just a thing but an character. Each piece for me is a special creature with its own phenotypic features, mood and story. Ceramics is some kind of an alchemical process of transforming an amorphous clay mass into a unique body with special features. Hand-building, stoneware, high firing - at all is a history of transformations. I am interested in metamorphosis, transition from one state to another, deep rebirth of the clay body and the stress that it experiences when turns into stone. Bringing into the world beings whose bodies are strong and beautiful as stone, I every time try to guess what kind of story each of these creatures can tell?'
'Born in 1981 in Blagoveshchensk, Russia.Studied Applied Arts in the Amur state University and graduated with a specialist degree. During my education I was mostly involved in ceramics, finally graduated with ceramic sculptures series. Since 2009 I act as ball-jointed doll artist. In 2013 I created my own brand of collectible art dolls named Bardo Research @bardoresearch. Many of my collectible dolls belongs now to private collections from USA, United Kingdom, France, Sweden and Japan.After moving to Moscow in 2017, I have been constantly participating ininternational art doll exhibitions and festivals.Also in 2018-2019, I attended sculptural life classes in the Studio of Alexander Rukavishnikov, where develoded my skills in life studies under the guidance of well-known russian sculptors Dmitry Tugarinov and Alexey Vikulov.In the spring of 2020 during the restrictions associated with the pandemic, Iwas overtaken by a deep emotional burnout as a doll artist.In order to recover mentally and reload my ability to create, right after the quarantine was lifted in Moscow, I returned to ceramics.'
