Ustina Yakovleva

Ustina Yakovleva creates paintings, graphic works, and objects. A large part of her practice is informed by graphic works consisting of identical individual strokes that create abstract compositions; an automatic writing of sorts that binds time into material form. In her works in other media, she follows similar principles: embroideries evolve into organic structures, fabric sculptures grow to resemble continents or icebergs, or possibly electronic circuits rooted in empty air.

Ustina Yakovleva has exhibited work at the 5th Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art, Ekaterinburg; Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art; Museum of the Artistic Exploration of the Arctic, Arkhangelsk, all Russia among others.
