“Engines + Beasts” is a surrealist collection of handcuts, featuring originals and fine art prints.

A surreal Journey through dream worlds inhabited by strange and wonderful creatures.

Axenia Raulet is a multidisciplinary artist, currently Artist in Residency at Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, exploring the intersection of visual art, sounds and performance.

“I am fascinated by the power of Layering. My work explores the many dimensions of this art form, from combining images and words to layering sound and movement. Through my creative process, I strive to capture the surreal and psychological world of folk tales, using the multi-dimensional layers as tools to explore the depths of the human psyche. My art is a reflection of my addiction to memories, my quest for harmony amid chaos, and my belief in the elegance of simplicity.

My work is vibrant, bold, and unexpected. I draw inspiration from a diverse range of sources, including mythology, anatomy, astronomy, and inevitably so my own personal experience.

Experience of displacement and migration have been crucial in my bio-artistic journey and in the weaving of my interpersonal web.

Each piece is a unique exploration of the interplay between different elements, with each element chosen carefully to create a cohesive and impactful whole. By experimenting with disciplines, I aim to evoke a sense of wonder and intrigue in the viewer.”
