The new series of paintings and objects continues the history of transformation of different materials, which Daria has created for a years. This time, not only figurative works but also objects fixed in transitional forms are presented as independent elements of the exposition.
Dasha Kudinova was born in 1982 born in Siberia, Russia. After graduating from Moscow design university she continued her education in the USA. Dasha lived in New York for several years, where she worked as a fashion photographer and an assistant of world famous artists. Also that time she started her collaboration with curators and her professional art career, showing works in art galleries.
What is her art about, is it something biomorphic or technogenic? What do they mean? What is the concept of those paintings? Besides, you will not understand the main idea of Dasha Kudinova’s artworks if you are not familiar with her biography, her style and approach to art, formed in New York ‐ the city which sets the standard for art all over the world.
We can also describe her artworks as distant relatives of Koons’s sculptures and paintings of Takashi Murakami. They were created from the inspiration of biomorphic works of Ernesto Neto. You will find inside of them the same pleasure of fluid forms, tactile hunger and sexuality.
Dasha Kudinova paintings’ wonderfully represent the unsustainable nature of the material world. In accordance with her conception, the basic characteristics of the forms of reality are fluidity, viscosity, and gravitation to diffusion and convergence. At the same time explosive energy plays with them, tearing through their tension and forming explosions of the most fantastic shapes. In her paintings the artist embodies a surrealist chemistry of modern, flexible reality, going in search of postmodernist visual culture in the traces of three‐dimensional computer graphics.
Her conceptual image, taste in colours and assured mastery of painting technique demonstrate Dasha Kudinova’s level of skill, and her ability to create a profound work of art.
