Elena creates figurative and abstract paintings focused in a process of interior searching, and shares them with us. We must be willing to appreciate the color and the company of a particular silence that is present in almost all of her paintings with a romantic palette.
Some works evoke the intimate contact between the colored landscapes and the eye; others with a significant sensibility unite abstraction and representation loaded with a symbolic weight.
Such is the case of the “Dancing Forests.” Here the trees intertwine in continuous motion, structured like colorful islands. In her abstract paintings, the mixed techniques are a means chosen to make matter express immaterial scenes. This is a true challenge, since the paintings, lacking an exterior object where to lean reflect the artists intention.
There is a strong visual impact in her paintings. The pithy, yet never simply, composition along with subtle tones create elegant layers and mysterious energy.
