Victoria Fard is a Canada-based artist who fuses architecture, fine art and digital fabrication to create ethereal settings that explore themes of nature, culture and heritage. In the past, her work has been featured at Art Basel Miami, Frieze Los Angeles and galleries across North America and Europe.
Made in conjunction with 1stDibs, Fard has released AETHERIUS, a collection of new digital NFT artworks that are algorithmically shaped by faceted terrain and kaleidoscopic vegetation. “I envision the abundance and tranquility that nature brings. Despite its vibrant surroundings, it is a place of reflection and solitude,” said the artist in a statement.
Similar to her previous studies, which are deeply inspired by Fard’s Persian and Filipino heritage, there is a noticeable floral motif that runs concurrent through each of her hypnotic settings. The development for AETHERIUS took five months to complete and is composed of 50,000 meshes and 25 GB of production data.
AËR, TERRA and ACQUA from the AETHERIUS collection are all one-of-one editions and are available to bid on at 1stdibs for $7,188.95 USD, respectively.
