The Sakha Series and The Isorithm Series, which excavate the layers of her cultural identity as a former citizen of the USSR. The Sakha Series depicts the artist's journey through time, meditating upon the connection with her ancient Eastern European and North Asian lineage to explore spirituality as a source of lifeforce. The latest large-scale paintings focus on the existence of our non-human kin, particularly embodying the essence of elements such as fire, water, and air. Accompanying The Sakha Series are works from The Isorithm Series. In these works, Pinkusevich draws on her Ukrainian and Russian identity and personal experience of growing up in the USSR at the end of the Cold War, as well as the current Russian invasion of Ukraine. Her mark-marking is guided by gestures and physical movements that react to and synthesize the complex relationship between these two countries.
