Elena Shlegel / Елена Шлегель
“An artist lives partially in a dream - just like a poet does. I strive to reflect something impossible to exist…to allow an audience to see beyond the reality, to make up its own fairy-tale, to become a participator and a creator. And thus to feel happy for a moment…” And indeed the laws of reality somehow lose their power in Elena Shlegel’s paintings. Her every work offers an extremely comforting feeling of warmth, contentment and prosperity. The artist's main goal is the creation of a unique and refined atmosphere. Her artistic elegies have no defined borders between the form and the content. The light plays an important part in her works – it’s as if each and every detail is illuminated from within.
