John Brock Art Alcove

March – April 2021 

Our featured artist for the John Brock Art Alcove for March and April is Ekaterina Korotovskikh.  Originally from Russia but now residing in Dunedin, she uses her art as my way to express herself. Although she drew all her life, it was only in 2015 when she was pregnant with her first daughter that she attended a class at Saint Petersburg College. Since then, she has been advancing her technique further and become more proficient in photographic realism. She prefers using charcoal over graphite or paint.

She chooses to depict things she sees every day. Instead of the harassment, ugliness, and violence in the world, she chooses to focus on the beauty, love, and innocence in everything. She wants people to see good in this world, to show them the beauty they might be missing under the influence of technology and the burdens of everyday life. When drawing she strives to make her work as realistic as it can possibly be and continuously seeks new avenues to learn more.
