Biography

In Dasha Shishkin’s paintings and prints, she allows line to take ultimate precedence. Although bright blocks of color inhabit her compositional spaces, Shishkin removes herself from the painter’s milieu, emphasizing that she is “still attached to line and [the] eloquent silhouettes that line creates, leaving painting and colors to be fillers and not definers.” Her intricate compositions vary from complex scenes of human interaction to patterning and designs devoid of human figures. Shishkin exploits the imperfections of found materials, such as creases in a canvas, to serve as catalysts for expression.
