Lina Fedirko - Mixed Media Artist
Woman in black exploring color, movement, tenderness and classic beauty through mixed media. Staging conversations between oils and textiles.
I spent the last 25 years making textiles relate to the human body, and then I thought - what would happen if textiles had a life of their own, what if their qualities were captures on canvas.
I started creating canvas stories with technicolor fabric strips cut from print pattern fabrics. The effect was mesmerizing, loud and fabricated.
In attempts to capture something more heartfelt, I turned to burlap, I made it rise and fall. I created a love affair between burlap and oil. Often also including the fabric strips, I'm attempting to capture stillness and movement in one.
My art aims to evoke lightness, serenity, and a sense of beauty.
