Elena Anatolievna Beresina is an established professional artist whose works have got high appreciation among specialists. As a talented artist she is equally good at sublimed and delicate watercolour, austere and demanding pastel as well as oil-paint encouraging a new creative research.
Elena Beresina made her first professional steps in Kharkov Higher Arts and Crafts institute. At first only her graphic works appeared on exhibitions: a young artist presented herself as an illustrator and a caricaturist. She started to work with colour several years later and colour added special flavour to her works. Todays her canvases are easy recognizable and stand out of many others because of their festivality, originality and freshness. They reflect bubbly personality of the artist.
Elena is keen on travelling and often she revives her memoires and dreams of distant countries and cities, reserved places, which people often wish to visit. Here sea endless expanse full of sparkling sun welcomes spectators, narrow old streets lead them to the unknown world , magic and unknown plants and flowers jollify them. Pearl-coloured sky is blinking, tree leaves are rustling, transparent water is still and contours of building are subtly recognized in the landscapes by Beresina. The series of pastels “Vanishing cities” are a splendid picturesque example of historic memory .
Still-life painting of Beresina delivers beauty and colours of hot summer and solemnity of quiet autumn. It is absolutely amazing but Breresina searches with great love every element of the world around her, finding inspiration in very small things. Usual things get romantic charm and attraction. Colours of her works vary from bright, hot, exciting to tender, flickering and cool. Delicate modeling of details goes hand in hand with complexity of colour forms.
Multidimensional works with symbolic meaning occupy special place among all other ones . While the life around is becoming “light“ when the Internet chatting and slang of new technological epoch are pushing out communication and literature, the artist is very deep in the search for new concepts. The canvases are mind-bending play with time and place. Shift of layers, their rhythmic discretion and colour atonality create a possibility to deliver different emotional states. Elena is able to reflect unique inner feeling of the characters and their passions are always neatly interwoven with author’s own feelings. Some works which are the example of transmission of sounds into colours and language of the picture really need very close attention.
Elena Beresina cannot only see the beauty of the world around but she has a great talent to reconsider it, to demonstrate it in her pictures and to create both soulful and deep-toned images using various techniques .
