Object Label

Dasha Shishkin’s work is notoriously ambiguous, adhering to broad themes rather than illustrating a clear narrative. Dedication to Life Among People evokes the erotic and sensual pleasures of human life. The large size and dense composition work together to envelope the viewer, inviting us into a messy, sexy ecology of human life.
