Out and In of Symmetry: Simone Alexandrino & Daksh Sahni
Simone Alexandrino's artwork is a series of compositions created to reflect and express the parts of the self that are invisible. Each piece is a complex sum of intricate lines and patterns that mirror the integration of inner and outer worlds. For Simone, creating these art works represents the integration of the many aspects of her consciousness into a transformative beauty and cohesive whole.
Simone’s primary medium is ink on paper. Her 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 her work begins without any framework - she lets her lines freely express her authentic self by letting the energy flow freely through her onto her work. Her meditative, unplanned and organic technique takes her work into unexpected directions resulting in abstract drawings; a physically realized version of the stream of consciousness.
Simone Alexandrino was born and raised in Brazil. Her fascination with communication and creative expression led her to earn a degree in Communication from the University of Uberaba, Brazil and her Masters Degree in Spiritual Psychology from the University of Santa Monica and has studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
Daksh Sahni, a self-described “interdisciplinary entrepreneur” with vast experience in design, digital art and new media, digitizes fiancée Simone 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.
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.
