Dasha Valakhanovitch has an agile practice that ranges between painting, drawing and sculpture. Her work stems from manufactured landscapes and material exploration. In her thesis exhibition, In Visible Lines, she addresses the complexity found within the familiar realm of the line. In her work, line, in the form of gesture and form, represented by traces of paint and clay sculptures are woven together in a visual display. Her research explores how lines govern our landscape and questions its limitations. Drawing connections between land and human interaction with the abstract nature of lines, Valakhanovitch, invites the viewer to reflect and engage with her interpretation of line. Valakhanovitch earned her B.F.A in painting and drawing from Concordia University. She has exhibited in Toronto, Montreal, France and Belgium. Her work can be found in the Art Gallery of Ontario's Art Rental & Sales Gallery, Lonsdale Gallery and AIMIA  corporate art collection.
