Inna Pedan is a representative of the Kharkiv School of Design, Her works are created on a conceptual basis. Their nature is a living artistic idea that determines the nature of materials, techniques, and the system of expressive means. Art objects are formed around the main message, the basis of which is the author’s artistic philosophy. The artistic language outlines the physical phonetics of art objects that intonate in accordance with the conceptual content. That is why Inna Pedan prefers to work with natural materials (primarily wood).
In her artistic repertoire, there are mainly “object” genres that address the viewer in both figurative and plastic languages. In her works, the designer explores the imaginative possibilities of art objects, delicately balancing the edge of design and artistic practices.
The author’s style of Inna Pedan is characterized by a combination of high aesthetics and design engineering. Using living natural forms as a rhetorical tool for artistic reasoning, the designer resorts to active rethinking. The apparent simplicity and conciseness of Inna Pedan’s art objects are the result of her unique plastic intuition combined with carefully calculated artistic solutions.
