Overview

Valerie's work unveils deeply personal matters such as her working-class upbringing in post-Soviet Latvia and a severe heart condition that keeps her constantly disconnected from reality.

Valerie Savchits is an artist based in Brighton who's work unveils deeply personal matters such as her working-class upbringing in post-Soviet Latvia and a severe heart condition that keeps her constantly disconnected from reality. The theme of human stupidity has remained a common thread throughout Savchits' paintings.

 

She takes inspirations from dystopian sci-fi, star atlases and illustrations from science and nature books that surrounded her childhood. Her paintings are accompanied by text in the form of diary entries and Russian literature. Valerie predominantly works on canvas, but also with clay, concrete and minerals.
