* Andjana Pachkova

Represented by Stanley Street Gallery

Andjana (Andy) Pachkova comes from the traditional Russian art tutoring background. Following Perestroika, in the early 1990s, she took classes at Stroganov Moscow State University of Art and Industry, as well as studied with various private tutors.

In 1997 Andjana won a prestigious Davis Fellowship and subsequently moved to the United States to pursue a graduate degree in liberal arts at Dartmouth College. While at Dartmouth, Andjana took a visual arts class to enhance her drawing technique. After that she studied art at the night courses at NYU, and later, continued her studies here in Australia through a two-year study at Northbridge Visual Art School (“NVAS”) (earned Diploma of Visual Arts in 2014) and at the Willoughby Art Center (“WAC”) and the Wollarha Waverly Art School (“WWAS”). At WAC, NVAS and WWAS Andjana studied with such notable local artists as Karen Atkins, Brandt Lewis, Robyn Ross, Denis Clarke and Tony Tozer, among others. Recently Andjana started developing an interest in printmaking which further informed her understanding of painting and drawing.

Andjana holds a Master of Law from Harvard University (Cambridge, MA), Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from Dartmouth College (Hanover, NH) and a Bachelor of Laws from Moscow International University. Andjana has lived and studied law and art in many countries and has had a wealth of experiences and imagery that she has been working on integrating in her art.

Having moved to Australia in 2013, Andjana developed a keen passion for the Australian landscape and has enjoyed the local art scene ever since. The artist has passionately explored the Australian landscape through line and color. Andjana is interested in understanding the subtle changes in the human psyche that occur when a person moves through a series of places. Her further interest lies in discovering how that mutual interaction of the human being and the landscape shapes both. Andjana is captivated by the never-ending dance of the nature and the human, passionate and loving to be sure, yet mostly violent, and at times exploitative.
