WOP Works on Paper


The Russian artist and illustrator Sveta Shuvaeva works in mediums such as drawing, painting, collage, and installation. The DRAW-S exhibition presents selected works on paper in addition to an abstract cartoon, a collage of draw- ings made over the past six years. These drawings are fragments of abandoned or unfinished works that have been recycled. Trained as an architect, Shuvaeva’s works examine the ornaments of modern visual culture. They provide useful optical directions for everyday life and reinterpret them. In her visual readymades, Shuvaeva removes meaning from her images, combining functionality and decoration.
