Nadezhda's works focus mainly on the presence of the modern individual in the world around them, the internal personal isolation in contrast to the globalization of the modern world, the loneliness and depth of our emotional world.

The latest project she has been working on brings the attention to loneliness and the sublimation in the creative process viewed as a way of salvation.
