Radina Droumeva is a mathematician turned conceptual photographic artist. She was born in Bulgaria, and moved to Canada at the age of 14. She now lives in the small town of Ladner, BC. She explores themes involving the human condition and how we interact with our environment - drawing inspiration from the practice of mindfulness, personal connection with nature, social justice issues, and climate change issues.
Her main approach to creating involves iterative stages of putting together building blocks - photographs of individual objects - and allowing her own imagination to guide the process towards a finished concept, with the intention to bring subconscious ideas to life. Her scientific background allows Radina to borrow ideas from biology and mathematics research techniques, and combines these with digital image processing tools to fuel her artistry. All is not digital, though - Radina often dabbles in experimentation with her finished works, including use of encaustic and acrylic mediums.
