By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by Ukrainian 

landscape painter Gelena Pavlenko (born 1969 in Kyiv, Ukraine).

Gelena trained at the Ukrainian Art Academy. Her work has featured in solo and group exhibitions in the Ukraine, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Italy, the USA and Canada.  She is based in New York,  where she lives with her husband and son.

 

"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 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 structuring of the universe of art." D.Korsun, leading Ukrainian fine art expert.
