Immediately recognizable, Ilana Zweschi’s abstract paintings derive from her use of handwritten algorithms to determine precise arrangements of brush strokes and complex color gradations. Influenced by her studies in math as well as art, she began as a figure painter before realizing that her interest in logic could be incorporated into painting. While the paintings begin with formal elements that collaborate with an algorithm, underlying figurative drawings give the algorithm something organic to build on. 

Ilana Zweschi is an artist working in Seattle, Washington. She attended Skidmore College, graduating summa cum laude in 2011, where she was an Art Major and a Mathematics Minor. In 2014 she earned a Master of Fine Arts in painting from the State University of New York at Albany and is currently an instructor at Cornish College of the Arts. Zweschi has exhibited expansively, recently completing a large scale commission for the Facebook Open Arts Program, is part of the Microsoft art collection, and received the DASH artist grant for 2022. Notable group shows include: Tiger Strikes Asteroid in New York, Museum of Museums in Seattle, and Out of Sight: A Survey of Contemporary Art in the Pacific Northwest. Her work has been published in the No. 145 Pacific Coast Issue of New American Paintings, a Youngspace interview, and featured on the opening page of the Culture section of the Seattle Met in 2020.
