Galina’s imagery begins whilst out walking or poking around in unexceptional situations. “Im not sure what Im looking for, but by never looking for anything precise I stay in a state of in-betweenness. In-betweenness can be uncomfortable, but if you allow yourself to float there for a bit, comical and refreshing connections between things appear; insignificant thoughts, moments, objects and encounters become special.” Using her daily encounters as a source of inspiration ensues a diaristic quality to her work, offering new perspectives on the small things. The conceptual and physical immediacy of her work delivers a humorous and intimate view on nature, daily mundanities and her constant emotional drifts. Galina Munroe received her MFA from Central St. Martins.
