In the pencil drawings of Uzbekistan-based artist Dariya Kanti you can see patience. The textures are hazed — seemingly dulled by time. Her subjects are sculptural, each piece a still life of unknown objects.
Kanti’s work hints at folklore — the ephemera and characters from the terrain of mythology. Her figures are dressed for ceremony. The patterned robes and dress, animals at their side in a partnership of the moment.
