Ustina Yakovleva is a young Russian artist who has participated in solo and group exhibitions in Russia, Switzerland, Germany, Austria and so on. Despite her background as a graphic artist, she experiments with semi-abstract graphics and fabric objects that evoke an image of the pre-human organic world.

The artist describes her art:

“A large part of my practice is constituted by graphic works, which consist of identical, individual strokes that grow into abstract forms. It is a kind of automatic writing, which binds time into the material form. Works in other media have the similar principle: embroideries that evolve into forms often unpredictable for me; beads and thread sculptures reminding continents or icebergs; or possibly electronic circuits rooted in empty air.

Some projects I develop are figurative and represent imagined or real landscapes, their various techniques allow the reveal of peculiarities and variety of the same landscape, depending on objective and subjective factors.

I create works without sketches, as I am interested in self-forming composition as part of the creation process; drawing develops as a living organism, taking new forms throughout the work. Individual elements construct larger structures, like the atoms and cells construct the objects around us.”
