Olena Pryduvalova

"My work is painting. I feel quiet and free while painting. I need tranquillity in my studio so that everything is concentrated in my hands and head. My main theme is Kyiv - "portraits" of streets, buildings, arches, corners, caryatids and light and shadow of these themes. My vision comes from colour which shows the maximum intensity of colour and light. Life is full of surprises. Nature exists and it is perfect, it will always fills my soul with joy and wonder. The main thing is to save the ability to be surprised by life. Nature exists already and it is perfect which makes it impossible to reflect it. You can be surprised by nature. Any house, street, tree, face will entice you and you will follow it... then inspiration will come. The outcome of my work should bring the viewer happiness and tranquillity."
