"Drdak's work represents the first synthesis of repoussé and contemporary painting."
For the past decade Drdak’s work has employed the unique synthesis of repoussé metalwork and painting. This congress of materials—the first of its kind—was pioneered by Drdak and definitively established during her 2011 Fulbright research fellowship to Nepal where she studied with the finest living masters of this elite practice; the grandsons of the famed Kuber Singh Shakya of Patan, Nepal. Drdak is the first and only artist to date working with this material synthesis. Her works are found in public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad.
