Alëna Olasyuk's 'Duality' series represents the idea of natural balance which is born out of of duality, basement for everything. Duality is itself a part of balance, part of the goal and idea of living. But the balance can't exist without accepting duality of things. Complexity and simplicity, chaos and balance, movement and tranquility, transience and infinity - these are the subjects that Alëna explores in her oeuvre. All the works of the series are made with Chinese ink and fountain pen. Black and white are the colors which suite best to represent the point of duality in its infinite complexity. In this way, Alëna draws our attention to the idea of duality in everything around and within us. Her minimalistic paintings are meditative and call the viewer for concentration and meditation. They reveal the visual and spiritual experience of world's duality and invite us to plunge in it to find our own balance.
