Irina Cumberland

Irina Cumberland, Contemporary Artist

Irina Cumberland specialises in Ocean & Fractal Patterns paintings.

 Irina was born in Ukraine in 1986 where she initially studied in medical training. Later in life she decided to pursue her passion for painting, leaving to live in the USA where she currently lives and works. Irina has developed a painting style to highlight Natural Fractal Patterns and colours on canvas. Each painting is specifically designed to maximize the calming effects of shapes, colours and scenery.

Being medically trained Irina discovered that there was a growing interest in the calming effects of fractal patterns among scientists. A 1986 NASA study demonstrated that participants who viewed images consisting of fractal patterns of nature, experienced a 44% decrease in physical stress response. Irina wishes to evoke the cathartic effects of observing the ocean in her paintings.

Painting in photo-realistic style, the artist captures the peaceful ambience of water. Her painting style reflects the naturally occurring patterns and colours of the ocean that are greatly beguiling.

These Fractal Patterns such as snowflakes, trees, and waves repeats itself infinitely across different scales & size. Currently working from her studio in California, this has now become Irina’s main focus in Art.

Irina Cumberland’s statement

“I watched the ocean’s steady movement in and out, the glittering light dancing on the surface, the tiny rainbows reflecting off the sand – lulling me into a peace that I’d never experienced before.

 

As we have moved away from nature and into skyscrapers and concrete jungles, we have inadvertently removed ourselves from what calms and comforts us, and have instead surrounded ourselves with shapes and images that increase our stress response. This is important, considering that in our culture we are surrounded by such artificial geometric patterns: in our architecture and sometimes in the abstract art we hang on our walls.” – Irina Cumberland
