Story & Message: This work came along when I was shooting my Paper Cuts project, focused above all on monochrome, of the color blue in this case. It was shot at a commuter train station in Helsinki, Finland, and takes advantage of its unique design. When I saw those round windows I immediately thought of 2 things: 1) they reminded me of a portal of some kind, a portal to a parallel world, the world of our imagination 2) the shape, when viewed from the side became oval and became a classic oval portrait frame, perhaps 200 years ago a person could carry a small portrait like that on his or her neck in a locket. That could be a portrait of someone near and dear. I thought in this case it might be a portrait or an image of a better self, the one perhaps you're striving to become. From my project “Geometries of Thought”: Our brains have evolved to see patterns and work with symbols to save energy and be able to quickly spot danger or food. We see a glimpse of a shape and we immediately associate it with something familiar, constructing a story about it: "That rectangle is a building and I'm not going there". The process is usually fast and unconscious. We rarely second-guess simple everyday life things that we see around us when being focused on something more important. The moment we do start to notice strange and interesting alignments in the geometries around us is exciting. In reality, nothing changes, it's the same rectangle. What's changed is our point of view and therefore our feeling about it. We can now construct a new story, consciously this time, and see familiar things in a new light. The project offers a few unusual perspectives for a mind to play with and make new connections.

Dasha Pears

Helsinki
Dasha Pears is a visual artist living in Helsinki, Finland. Her art started with her photography enthusiasm in 2010, which grew into a distinctive and recognizable “psychorealistic” style that you see today. “My art is about everything that is going on in our sometimes obsessive minds and what we are often afraid to accept. It’s meditative, calming, and organized so that you look at it you could take a breath of fresh air, relax and know that there’s never right and wrong, it’s all a part of the eternal mystery of life.“ Dasha has been exhibiting her creations all over the world from the US and Mexico to numerous countries in Europe to Asia and Australia. Her psychorealistic artworks reside in multiple renowned private collections in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, Zurich, Milan, Amsterdam, Madrid, London, Hong Kong, and Melbourne.
