Natasha Dikareva is a sculptor and installation artist. She currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Dikareva is known for her surreal, exquisitely formed human figures which often morph into other biological forms such as birds, fish and trees. Humans and other living creatures are united in the experience of life. Dikareva's latest work develops during an intensively introspective process, confronting the idea of physical security. The recent body of work reflects a concern with current events and an imagined biological response to a world that has been decimated by industrialization, war and pandemic. New life springs from shells which have survived the collapse, offering a sense of optimism and security, a sanctuary from the adverse effects of an over-industrialized world.
