Nastia Gladushchenko is based in the Blue Mountains, and her work examines the relationship between humans and the plant world and aims to mimic the temporal and playful nature of plants with her ethereal and dreamy painted works.
Through her studies and work as an Interior Architect in Sydney, Rotterdam and Brussels, Nastia developed a sensitivity to the way our environments affect our bodies and our minds and an opportunity to create two large public art pieces in Sydney launched her art practice. Both her smaller works and larger public art commissions aim to immerse the audience in a playful yet meditative environment often featuring botanical elements.
After spending most of her life in the very urban Inner West, her studio and home are now in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains and this recent move has influenced her work greatly. All Nastia's images are taken by her equally talented photographer husband, Damien Milan.
