Lina Condes

Lina Condes

Lina Condes (b. 1988, Ukraine) is a contemporary Ukrainian-American artist known for her stick figure sculptures, earned her MFA in Fine Arts, Interior and Furniture Design from Kiev University of Technology and Design. Born in the countryside of Cherkassy City, she grew up in a family of a professor of physics and math, which is what drew her understanding of an industrial material for her future sculptures from an early age.

Lina’s work is conceptually positioned at a heavy-light, high-low axis. The sculptures are created using common industrial stainless steel, wood and stone, through which she seeks to authentically represent the emotional and mental lives of modern people. Her sculptures are strongly inspired by the Italian Renaissance. In her anatomic studies, Lina investigates the lineage of traditional figurative sculpture by masters such as Giorgio Vasari and Leonardo Da Vinci and updates it using contemporary technologies. Condes focuses on ‘mental states’, different emotions and psychological conditions that she attempts to represent by blending materials, shape and color. In a way, she works with metal and wood as if they were bronze and marble.

Her works have been shown at The Art New York (New York), Art Miami (Miami), solo show during Venice Biennale (Venice), solo show at Crossing Art Gallery (Chelsea, NYC), group show at Christies (NYC ) and others
