Ariadna Dane is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in London. Having grown up in Siberia and travelled extensively, the artist discovered a connection to nature which became a source of inspiration for her evolving art practice.
The creative process behind Dane's work involves experimentation with ink, cutouts and shadow techniques to imitate and amplify nature. The resulting forms and textures are partially chance and partially calculation; the outcome of both ceding the artist's control over the process and being acutely aware of the development of forms and textures. Just like in nature, every resulting element is unique and cannot be repeated.
Dane's work elicits a sense of wonder, transfigured into a moment of a quiet reflection.
