Victoria Kovalenchikova’s textured abstract artworks are an outlook on the transformation of the world surrounding us; a shout in the cold infinity of the cosmos. Kovalenchikova expresses through her sculptural artworks that our planet itself is a work of art, a kaleidoscope of colors, a patchwork of patterns; an interconnected sphere without beginning or end. Exploring the landscape of the Earth, she plays with angles and textures to create works that appreciate and bring attention to the uniqueness of our planet.
The contemporary trend in her paintings is characterized by a figurative integration of abstract elements. Creatively mixing media from cement, resin, acrylic, and epoxy on stretched canvas, Victoria’s work is simultaneously sculpture and painting.
This stand-alone sculpture measures 23 inches tall by 33 inches wide and 23 inches deep. It is covered with a shiny layer of crystalline, glass-like resin, which enhances the colors and adds depth.

Victoria Kovalenchikova was born in Mogilev, Belarus, and received her fine arts degree from the Belarusian State Academy of Arts. She has been residing in the Netherlands since 2008.
Her series on the world is immediately familiar, radiating the colors of each continent. Her training is evident in her skillful application of textures, provoking a harmonious juxtaposition of elements that humbles our approach to the earth. Kovalenchikova wants people to see the wonder of the world from above; perhaps as an eagle sees it from a mountain aerie, a pilot from the cabin of his airplane; the astronaut from the surface of the moon; a multi-hued orb spinning amongst thousands of other stars, yet unique. She tries to bring the textures of the planet alive so that the viewer can almost feel the heat of the volcanos, the parched thirst of the massive deserts, and the cool blues of our all-encompassing oceans. Some parts are smooth, and some are rough and rugged.
Kovalenchikova states, “Although we humans may feel like disconnected, independent fragments, Earth reminds us that we are all united on this place: notes within a larger symphony of life. No different from a whale in the ocean or the needle of a pine tree. There is no way out; to save ourselves we must save our home”
