A solo exhibition by Elena Kotovenko is taking place in the Signal Arts Centre.
This exhibition provides an insight into the work of an artist who has various styles and some very strong ideologies, that echo in her work.
A fascination with colour and impressionism results in pointillist-like night city scenes and landscapes. The love of nature makes her explore the use of raw materials and incorporate them into her landscapes. As a keen gardener and lover of flowers she experiments with clay to reproduce life-like 3-dimentional flower canvasses, in deep edged box frames.
As a lover of nature and wildlife she constantly works on reducing waste and re-uses discarded plastic and other small objects into her mixed media pieces. This process led her to the discovery of steampunk movement and experimenting with various media and materials.
All these different styles represent one artistic career, which is constantly evolving and changing, just like the world around us. Step into the experience at the Signal Arts Centre, Bray from 5th July to the 18th July 2021.
