Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"I am fascinated with the process of arranging abstract shapes on the surface, in which everyone, even without a plot, will ultimately find something deeply personal and touching."—Varvara ​Drobina

​Filled with countless allusions from various art forms, from cinema to theatre, from poetry to music, Varvara Drobina's artworks are strikingly powerful and have a lasting aftertaste. Decorative without becoming superficial, illustrative without becoming restrictive, they speak at both figurative and abstract levels.

Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper. The actual printing is done by hand using a printing press. As such no two prints are exactly the same.

This original artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
