Nature is the primary muse for Gelena Pavlenko's exhibition. She combines beautiful, living creatures with inanimate objects such as stone walls. She aspires to give her spectators many different views of seeing the diversity and volatility of the outside world because nowadays people see objects in their own fashion.
"Gelena's artworks contain something more meaningful than mere descriptions of flourishing nature. Her art offers an allegory of the whole natural world together with its eternal blooming. In her art one could easily discern a connection to magic realism, mainly because of her breathtaking diligence and remarkable painting mastery reveal themselves in combination with the poetic perception of reality. Her paintings convey the perfection a la Durer, diligent crafting of poetic images and Renaissance principles of the structuring of the universe of art." D.Korsun, leading Ukrainian fine art expert.
