A variety of techniques are utilized to create her artwork, including printing on unique media like fabric, and composing complex laser-cuts on wood and fabric - all with her personal touch. Dganit's most recent artworks are created by collaging layers of images and paint. In these pieces, distinctions between texture and image melt away into vivid scenes. The loose and painterly nature of her brushstrokes are achieved without the use of brushes. After collaging her images onto a canvas, Blechner dawns a simple pair of rubber gloves and takes finger painting to the next level, blending abstract smears of color and loose drippings of paint with crisp images.
