Her universe oscillates between realism and onirism. The immediate visual shock gives way to reverberations, sharpness of detail and, occasionally, hidden animals and visions.
These enigmatic architectures reveal a relationship between a fragmented reality and the familiar, in a collision of quasi-photorealism and the visually disturbed, unexpected or abstract.

Showing the deepness of some moments, reinterpreted signs of our time grow alongside a vibrant and hypnotic humanity.
 
In 2013, Vanessa Dakinsky's work will be exhibited internationally, in both personal and collective exhibitions. (France, England, Germany, Norway, Canada).

The light floods Vanessa Dakinsky's studio; the walls and floor are covered with sheets of paper stained with paint. Settled in her apartment, the room contains many pieces on the way to completion. "I always work on several paintings at the same time," she explains. “Not from the need to be working on different projects at once, but mostly because of the oil painting technique, which requires two to three weeks of drying. It takes me just over a month to complete a painting, especially as I work with layers, overlapping them like associating ideas".

(...) You find a predominantly urban feel in her work through the frequent use of artificial light. "The lights of the city are very lively," she confirms, "they really capture my attention." This vitality glows in her oil paintings: the accuracy of her colours and her shading allow a precise reproduction of the flesh. 
Photorealist? Undoubtedly, especially since photographs - taken on the spot - are often the bases of her paintings. But she doesn't simply rely upon this mere tour de force. The care brought to the dynamism and the energy of her approach brings a slight but essential gap. A surrealist flickering: the tipping point from which the familiar turns into the strange.
