Ekaterina Adelskaya (b. Moscow, 1988) is a London based artist working on abstract sculptures and watercolours, mostly revolving around the transformation of matter. After her 2012 graduation from the Russian State University of Cinematography and a number of years spent working in the Russian film industry, Adelskaya has gradually shifted to the art world, earning a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (1st class) at the University of Hertfordshire and relocated to London, Hackney, in 2019.
"I’ve always considered my artistic practice closer to alchemy. Through non-traditional methods of art-making, such as burning, melting or dissolving, I explore materials’ potentiality and their physical properties. The change of state fascinates me. Matter transformation is part of our existence, it’s life itself. — We adapt, thrive and decay in a constant flow of change" - Ekaterina Adelskaya, 2020
Ekaterina's work has been shown in UK and Asia, amongst them the Royal Academy's Summer (Winter) Exhibition 2020, and the CICA Museum in South Korea, where her work ’Blurring' (2017) has been acquired as part of the CICA Museum’s permanent collection. Adelskaya’s work 'Letting Go' (60x80 cm) will be on display (5 Dec 2020 - 7 Mar 2021) at the Royal West of England Academy's 168th Annual Exhibition in Bristol.
