Russia 1986

Viktoria Ikonen (born 1986) studied Graphic design and Painting at the Russian State Academy of Art and Design. In her works she attempts to show through the allocation and superimposition of forms mixed with photo the natural rhytms and vibrations of landscapes and nature. Her almost monochromatic paintings are interrupted radically by expressive multi colors, based on the artist’s own photos. The idea that our reality is quite relative, absurd and irrational - inspired by Camus existential philosophy- is a part of the concept.
