Vlasta Schevchenko

For Vlasta, the rich history of the Guildhall is the main inspiration for this body of work.

“This space is housing hundreds of years of encounters, memories of life-changing events, deeds of the individuals and their emotions. My response to this unique space is an exploration of the layers of history that have formed and will continue to do so long after we have had our turn. Using the mixed media approach to my exploration is a deliberate attempt to break through the chronology of history and evoke a new sense of connection to this rich heritage. I’m hoping to invite the viewer to experience this building in an unexpected way while weaving a little of their own history into the Guildhall space.”
