About artist

Irina Cumberland

Irina was born in Ukraine and she is currently living and working in the US. Irina has developed a painting style to highlight Natural Fractial Patterns and colours on canvas. Each painting is specifically designed to maximise the calming effects of shapes, colours and scenery.

Being medically trained Irina discovered that there was a growing interest in the calming effects of fractal patterns among scientists. A 1986 NASA study demonstrated that participants who viewed images consisting of fractal patterns of nature experienced a 44% decrease in physical stress response. These Fractal Patterns such as snowflakes, trees, and waves repeats itself infinitely across different scales & size. This has now become Irina's main focus in Art.

The Artist States: “As we have moved away from nature and into skyscrapers and concrete jungles, we have inadvertently removed ourselves from what calms and comforts us, and have instead surrounded ourselves with shapes and images that increase our stress response. My paintings are created with a conscious intent of highlighting natural fractal patterns of the ocean, which are scientifically proven to reduce stress. You no longer need to be near the ocean to experience its powerful benefits. You can simply incorporate them into your own environment.”
