IVA’s work focuses on storytelling, and provokes independent thinking. Inspired by the symbolism of Old Masters, she developed a unique pictorial language. IVA sources her images from printed contemporary advertisements, focusing on images rooted in consumer-facing objects and branded identities. She consciously manipulates these images through collage, thereby detaching them from their stereotypical associations. The viewer is able to then view the holistic image through a personal lens, imbuing meaning into the work that is distinctly their own.

Blood Moon series of works book which consists of 19 artworks dedicated to a rare cosmic event when the Moon and the Earth come to the closest proximity to each other (entrance of the moon into shadow of the Earth). It’s believed that human consciousness has an eclipse like The Moon releasing subconsciousness to the surface.
This is magic that happens in front of your eyes. And only looking deep into your own subconsciousness will you be able to unlock a secret hidden in each collage.
