Daria Aksenova is best known for her suspended paper dreamscape-like narrative compositions in ink.  In the heart of Houston’s newly renovated creative studios, she displays a unique treasure of imagination.  The current focus of her work takes on the creation of dynamic movement in a static medium, as a self taught artist, drawing from her past experience with the fashion and film industries.  It is her intent that cinematographic storytelling arises from the layers and complexity of the composition. These pull in both the eye and mind, presenting a space and opportunity for the imagination to wander into a deep narrative that can only be experienced first hand.

Daria Aksenova uses ink as it is an unforgiving medium that precludes editing and demands precision.  Individual elements are then hand-cut with a scalpel and suspended against each other until the desired depth is achieved.  Her technique demands a steady hand and unfailing commitment, often requiring over a hundred hours of dedication and intimacy with each piece.  

The subject matter is chosen by a fascination with mythology and folklore.  Her pieces evoke a dreamscape-like narrative to serve as a vehicle to transport the viewer back to past, more carefree times, outside the limitations of the everyday world.
