Katerina Lukina (b. 1995, Mytishchi, Russia) is a Moscow-based artist. Alumna of the Moscow University of Printing Arts, Department of Graphic Arts (2019). Lukina has participated in group shows at the ISSMAG gallery, the Ekaterina Cultural Foundation, the ZDES na Taganke gallery, as well as in international exhibitions in China, Slovakia, Poland.
The artist works in various media - from computer graphics to laser cutting on wood. The exhibited series is in computer graphics, in the technique of multi-layer relief from plywood, complemented by metal elements.
In the series "Second Cabinet: Black Dry Bread" Katerina Lukina develops the themes of transformation, rituality; she looks for ways to see differently. The artist presents the processes of birth and production of bread in the oven as a narrative sequence of images, and draws the analogy of a character's journey: call / lure - challenge - treat - honoring - a place at the common table.
