2018/2019: the artworks use the analysis on the ´déjalo (mor)ir´ series as a starting point, to produce drawings from the cultivation of different fungi.
traces and patterns generated by the diverse colonies of fungi are used to imitate their growing guidance and the interrelation between species.
each art piece is composed by several layers of drawings that contain numerous biological patterns, setting up a game of shadows, transparencies and saturation, which locates the work within the japanese culture. beauty it is explored from the hidden and the mistery.
the slender format, the organic shapes and the harmony of the composition of the drawings also respond to the asian admiration.
“We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates. A phosphorescent jewel gives off its glow and color in the dark and loses its beauty in the light of day. Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.” – In Praise of Shadows, Junichiro Tanizaki
déjalo (mor)ir: addresses the relationship between life and death. that vicious, intimate and continuous bond. it is what happens when beauty dies and lets a new form of preciousness be born.
these are works composed of traces and patterns of colors produced by different species of fungi, which arise when decomposing and cultivating different species of petals.
a fight breaks out on the canvas between the fungal colonies of each flower, in search of total colonization
el crío: the series presented in 35x50cm format works from the physiology of fungi and bacteria to form new imagined species. there is a constant search for new beings through the experimentation of various strokes and patterns, and by the use of the color: black, blue and red.
past works: the artwork focuses on the study and analysis of human, animal and plant bodies. there is a need to interpret and interrelate these kingdoms, from an overlap and saturation materialized in several layers of sheets of vegetable paper drawn with chinese ink and pens.

“Mischa Dabul´s drawings include a perspective compromised with tissue. A pattern covers our memories of the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms, confusing perception and typecasting. All us all. The proposal of her work it´s simple and complex, challenging directly the human condition. There´s no logic here, but pure poetry.”
