They are forceful, characteristically labor-intensive, and they represent his constant engagement with nature, strictly through light and shadow.”- Exert from the Mimi Fertz Gallery website about the exhibition.Untitled2012charcoal on canvas40 x 60 in.

12Danja Akulin Danja Akulin was born in 1977 in Leningrad, Russia. He graduated from the prestigious Berlin Academy of the Arts.His work emphasizes simplicity in both concept and form.Akulin is known for his pencil and sepia brush drawings as well as his use of light to define the meditative moods of his work.“Eschewing complicated subject-matter, Akulin allows the viewer the pleasure of mere contemplation. A group of trees, a set of nails, a window – the depiction of these simple objects permits the artist to freely experiment with texture, creating mesmerizing optical effects and leaving their contents open for multitude of interpretations.”-Exert from artist biography
