About the Artwork:
Starting in conditions of growing anxiety and anticipation of danger and completed to the sound of sirens, this work is about reflecting and transformation, evolution, and personal transitions. Shadows suggest traumas and tension, the light indicating clarity, power, and peace. As we experience changes around us and inside us, our identity evolves and the shadows and light, both real and imagined, adjust too.
About the Artist:
Dasha Pliska was born in Odessa, Ukraine, where she currently still lives and works. In 2013 she graduated from the Odessa International University of Humanities in Graphic Design. Her hometown has largely shaped her world with its rich cultural heritage and fascinating architecture. Inspired mostly by nature and her surroundings, Dasha uses pencil and ink in a graphic style to not only create art that can change the way we feel about an idea, but to suffuse a culture with ideological disorder, and to shift the human heart.
