About the Artist

Daria Aksenova
Member Since December 2017


Projects: I am a self-taught illustrator & paper sculptor currently based in Houston, TX. I strive to continuously further my education. I am a current member of The International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists (IAPMA) and Paper Artist Collective (PAC). I have kept up a daily studio practice since 2016 and worked on a variety of projects aside from running my own business, including public large-scale artwork installation, solo exhibitions, merchandise development, production, tradeshow exhibitions, and textile design. I currently show at galleries across the United States, including Haven Gallery (NY), Modern Eden (CA). I have presented my work in multiple international publications, magazines (ImagineFX, Beautiful Bizarre, Create!, & Pikchur), and art books (Infected by Art Volume 6, 7, 8 & 9). My work has been nominated for the 2019, 2020 & 2021 Chesley Awards in the "Best Three-Dimensional Art" and "Best Monochrome: Unpublished" category by the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists (ASFA). IX has been a staple event in my schedule for the last three years, and I would relish the opportunity to return and present a new body of work in 2022.

Location: Houston, TX

Description

Pen and Ink on hand-cut, layered, suspended paper. 9" x 9" (Framed to 10" x 10") This piece explores the self-delusions and loss of time that happen through stagnation, avoidance and uncertainty towards one's own decisions. It reflects the helplessness and unpredictability of relentless rumination that takes over the whole body like an invading fungus decaying from within. The character is withdrawing from herself, saddened by the realization yet not willing to consciously act. She is paralyzed by her own unrelenting doubts.
