Elena Kondratyuk - artist who does not represent, she displays. In her paintings we feel the tension monologue.
There is an expression of colors in her palette mix, where each color is a coded status of the element.
Her heroes are aliens, who in a patriarchal society, in the distribution of borders and standards are perceived by a detached observer.
There is a mystery in every panting. The mystery of life, the mystery of the woman, the mystery of love, eternal mystery.
Her paintings are like performance that captivates flirty eroticism, biased intonations.
Her women it's a pain and pleasure, chastity and challenge, beauty and mystery.
Female element - the element of space - is the basis of Elena's paintings.
Heaven has given her the gift to be a woman with the ability to reproduce the space on his canvases.
Oksana Gavroche, art, Uzhgorod
Elena Kondratyuk reached artistic maturity, and it seems right now it does not exist for her the unattainable creative peaks, that she would not overcome. Her style of painting is very expressive, emotionally rich. She writes with ease and confidence, surprisingly artistic and beautiful at the same time without the slightest hint of mannerism. Fantasy of the artist is boundless, rich imagery. She is characterized by romantic-lyrical attitude that is embodied in her paintings. She is free to play with shapes, colors, creating on the canvas magical fairy-tale world in which you want to live, because there reign the beauty, harmony, good. Typically, even in landscapes or still lifes, she is bright and unique, because she never copies nature but paints her impression of it. The world of her paintings is unique, playing with tones, harmonious combination of warm and cool colors.
Very rich inner world of the artist, formed by the classical literature often serves as the basis of her thematic paintings. In her paintings, the artist often turns to allegory, creating images and symbols that are hitting with its perfect imperfection, remain fresh and immediate.
