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.
