Luce Artist Biography

Tatyana Zhurkov began making figurative sculptures in 1972. She studied sculpture and theater design in Leningrad and moved to the United States in 1988. Her assembled sculptures reflect her experience making costumes and puppets, and incorporate a wide variety of objects including buttons, antique beads, embroidery, toys, and lace. She never sketches her ideas and prefers to experiment as each piece develops, stating that her creations are “mentally engineered constructions of my delight.”
