Ewa Doroszenko is interested in the phenomenon of documenting natural landscapes in contemporary times dominated by virtuality. In the series, she tries to capture the offline and online experience of the environment. Ewa Doroszenko experiments with new technologies, trying to develop a new kind of artistic self-expression suitable for the digital age. She creates images by building multi-element objects and photographing them in the form of still life and then changing them on her computer screen through multiple digital interventions. Radical computer postproduction makes her photographs look like abstract paintings. As a professional painter, Doroszenko reveals a natural ability to harmoniously combine colours and forms. However, all the applied procedures are only the external surface of reality built not from matter, but simulacra. Generatively distorted transcriptions of the physical world, reveal the authentic nature of the image – a collection of pixelated data. Perhaps these are already complementary, separate parallel realities.
