Maria Shevelkina

Maria studies Late-Antique, Byzantine, and Kyivan-Rus' art and architecture through primarily formalist and technical methodologies. She is interested in the aesthetics and phenomenology of lived and depicted spaces in correlation with their affective experience. Her work emphasizes the sensual--especially the visual-- as critical mediators of culturally-based perception. Maria is currently studying monumental wall-paintings, ornament, color, light, and movement.
