From Art Week LA:
Alexandrino’s artwork is a series of compositions created to reflect and express the parts of the self that are invisible. Her meditative, unplanned and organic technique takes her work into unexpected directions, resulting in abstract drawings and a physically realized stream of consciousness. Sahni, a self-described interdisciplinary “entrepreneur” with vast experience in design, digital art and new media, digitizes fiancée Alexandrino’s intricate, hand-drawn, ink-on-paper illustrations in this rare exploration of the aesthetic potential of 3D printed installation, architecture and design, augmented reality and additive manufacturing.
Simone’s works on paper will be displayed in simple frames so as not to detract from the intricacies and detail of her art. Many of Daksh’s pieces will be framed and illuminated from within, creating lighted wall sculptures. 3D models of furniture concepts and aluminum wall sculptures by Daksh will also be featured. Hand has never touched paper in Sahni’s design process as he digitizes Alexandrino’s work and applies layers of symmetry, scale and other transformations, with the end result being mathematically complex. The work retains its meditative and organic nature, yet is realized in a new dimension.
About Simone Alexandrino and Daksh Sahni
Alexandrino’s hand‐drawn lines and patterns multiply possibilities, embody feelings and connect her to the present moment, which is a source of endless inspiration for her. Almost all of her work begins without any framework – she lets her lines freely express her authentic self by letting the energy flow freely through her and onto the paper’s surface. An “art‐science hybrid” with degrees in architecture and experience working in the interactive entertainment industry, Sahni brings a combination of creativity and design acumen paired with strong technological expertise to his work. Thus, he sees himself uniquely positioned to bring what some may see as impossible, or have never even considered doing, into reality.
Alexandrino was born in Goiania, Brazil and Sahni, in New Delhi, India. They live in Los Angeles California and are engaged to be married.
