Kondratiuk Olena, 61 years old

Information
About myself and my artworks

The language of Olena Kondratiuk's painting is rich in imagery, color expression, plasticity of forms and lines. The artist is not limited to the arsenal of the painter, but uses elements of graphics, ornamentation, creates various textures, expanding the boundaries of perception of her painting. Even the usual Transcarpathian landscapes in the interpretation of Olena come out fantastically beautiful, colorful. The plasticity of the artist's paintings is special, light, direct, like the alternation of smooth and expressive lines, bold inclusion of bright color spots.

Olena Kondratiuk reached artistic maturity, and it seems there is unattainable creative peaks for her, 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 reigns 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, plays 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.

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 are 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 universe on her canvases.

Review to the painting "Fern Blooms"
23/12/2018

In one of the artworks of Olena Kondratiuk, the author uses motifs of folk beliefs about the flower of happiness that blooms once a year. The lucky ones who can see it will understand the language of any creature. On the canvas "Fern Blooms" the moon illuminates the naked bodies of the girls, decorated with only a few necklaces. Naive heroines of the artist are caught at the mystical moment of secrecy and waiting for the desired happiness.

I would like to pay special attention to women's images in the paintings of Olena Kondratiuk. The figures of women are often immersed in themselves, meditative, affectionate, always conscious of their attractiveness. You really cann't tear away your eyes from them. Their exquisitely mannered figures emit heat of the bodies, and almond eyes look with a daunting challenge, as in the painting "Sisters".

Today, Elena Kondratyuk is one of the most interesting figures in Transcarpathian painting. Her trick - passionate female figures, frank in their sensual being, created with an expressive powerful hand. Densely mixed multilayered paints on her canvases vibrates with a magnificent relief surface, it is poured by unexpected color relations, it rings with an elastic, energetic line.
