About the Work
Tatyana Ostapenko is a contemporary visual artist living in Portland. Her artwork focuses on the daily lives of people who usually do not make it into history books. Inspired by images from her native Ukraine, she seeks to depict a universal human experience, evoke empathy and hope in the face of adversity, and portray the indomitable spirit of all our mothers and grandmothers who withstood continued struggles and weathered many storms with dignity.
“I make oil paintings because I am under a spell of tradition. Having grown up in a failed utopia, the now-defunct USSR, I use pictorial language to probe its aftermath. I make contemporary history paintings to record the daily lives of people who usually do not make it into official historical records.” – Tatyana Ostapenko
