Tatiana Svrckova Larsen uses an interdisciplinary approach to link her personal journey of things such as cultural assimilation, spirituality and interpersonal relationships. Her work often explores the “grey area” between two contrasts and the idea of passage from one condition or place to another. Larsen often uses cultural clichés, religious symbolism and images from her personal history.
