Dasha Minkina is a Munich-based freelance painter. With her portraits, she creates dream worlds that invite the viewer to feel.
Her portraits turn inward. Over the bridge of empathy, they involve the viewer in an individual, wordless dialogue and thus create reflection surfaces and space for emotion. “Finding oneself in the opposite” becomes the core element of the art experience.
A special color palette in combination with the openness and sketchiness of the pictures is characteristic of Minkina’s work. Heavily washed-out, “dirty” pastel shades contrast with monochrome surfaces. Picturesque structures alternate with graphic lines. Realistic details meet strong abstraction.
The pictures are deliberately “unfinished”. They invite you to be mentally completed by people who search them for their own hidden feelings and stories.
