the small narratives

Olga Chernysheva uses many mediums from photo and video to small scale drawings. But since I am kind of obsessed with drawings as of late and always interested in the simple and banal I am most attracted to her small unassuming drawings/watercolors.

 She makes work about the small personal narratives occurring in Russian lives amongst the fragmentation of their culture and society.

It is a good reminder that something simple and small can be just as powerful and moving.
