  • Femme fatale evoked a myth for me, like a sexual fairytale, and more linked to previous times, like pin ups of 60's ... regarding women ...So I oriented a little differently ... I found that "gender" questions could be very hot to represent, and resonnate more accurately for "femme fatale" ...

    Born in 1985. now living in Rennes  (France)

    Since completing her degree in fine art, Vanessa Dakinsky has developed a more self-taught art practice, ​drawing references from the popular universe ​to​​​ the classic​al​ tradition of painting.
    Her universe oscillates between realism and onirism. The immediate visual shock ​gives way to reverberations, sharpness of detail and, occasionally, hidden animals and visions. 
    These enigmatic architectures reveal a relationship between a fragmented reality​​ and the familiar, in a collision of quasi-photorealism and the visually disturbed, unexpected or abstract.
    Showing the deepness of some moments, reinterpreted signs of our time grow ​alongside​ a​ vibrant and hypnotic humanity.
    In 2013, Vanessa Dakinsky's work will be exhibited internationa​l​ly, in both personal and collective exhibitions. (France, England, Germany, Norway, Canada).
