Elena is producing work of great originality, in which there is a release of emotion and a strangely captivating balance between abstraction and figuration. Still the signs and symbols of Slavonic icons, one of her favourite subjects in early works, continue to evoke feeling and memories of old times. She succeeds in expressing a deeply felt sense of unity and wholeness, balancing colour, form and composition. The effect of this process is powerful yet elusive.
