Underlying Kokeshisky’s work is overlapping, piling up, or the forms created by it. Kokeshisky sees the world as the result of overlap.
Layers of strata, layers of time and history, layers of memories, landscapes interwoven with many layers, etc.
At the very beginning of her artist career, Kokeshisky was interested in the images come from physical overlap and the conical images resulted on the accumulation of material. These images mainly stem from her childhood experiences which is: playing with piles of rubble at the scrapyard that she often visited with her father.
Standing on a pile of rubble, Kokeshsky could feel the scraps spread out on the ground like the spread of a dress.
The overlapping images of mountains and dresses still appear frequently as motifs in her works.
While thinking about such overlapping, in recent years, thinking has developed from physical overlap to temporal overlap. Kokeshisky expresses a series of "somewhere that is nowhere" The difference in brightness and saturation express things that existed in the same place but at different times. She also expresses a series of "Street View" with a motif of photos taken at different times and overlapped each other, like a map application on a computer.
