The works of the artist Svitlana Berdnyk-Malovana are people and nature, mostly flowers. The artist's flowers are not still - they are always alive, as if they were snatched from a close-up view of the landscape. The master does not detail them, but displays them on a special decorative level. Lilies, magnolias, irises seem to burst into the consciousness with a juicy colorful spot, grab the view with the rhythm of their petals and seem to be ready to drain from the canvas in the spring rain. The composition painted by oil is characterized by the unexpected lightness and transparency of watercolors with a light texture.

Portraits have a completely different sound. The artist selects her contemporaries as portraits and depicts them with astounding depth and sharpness. You can see that in the manner of performance the mastermind was probably the expressionist Modigliani. On the canvas appears a realistic image filled with the life and uniqueness of a particular individuality. However, the interpretation is by no means realistic - the proportions are purposely transformed, in order to reflect the deep spiritual impulses. Portraits are full of a special, now smooth, then angular grace. Models come out of the dark and seem to radiate their inner light. They call to look at the canvas, to understand their thoughts and feelings. And on an intuitive level, we succeed through the ability of Svitlana Berdnyk-Malovana to see and capture the human soul.
