Thanks to My Father.
When I just made my first art series by ink, and I had no one to write any reviews on it, here was nothing beside artworks. My father decided to help me and write it for me, without me even knowing about it. In the end, It wasn’t helpful much, but it was very important for me and for the first steps in my self-confidence as an artist.
I was deeply impressed by the art works of a young artist - Alena Olasyuk.
Alena Olasyuk’s art world is filled with ornate figures, beauty and elegance of the harmonic lines, preserving the balance, standing out of the carnival of picturesque colorful paintings. The composition is full of symbols and images, that creates a chain of deep associations: you can solve them one by one, reading paintings as puzzles, or you can feel the canvas intuitively, without analysis, dividing a painting into separate fragments, patterns, sports and lines.
You CAN LOSE the magic, that comes from the paintings, if you watch them in details. What is on the paintings?
- Signs, circles, symbols?
- Million times intercrossing intricate lines?
It is life!
Exquisite artist’s manner shows the life as it is on canvas.
It is unspeakable in the figurative perception of audience delight - the monolithic picture of the artist’s vision of the world. Paintings, which breathe and live their unique life! They are inseparable.
They can not be watched by pieces, in torn spots, details or elements taken out of the whole image. As it is impossible to watch only some strokes of the Mona Lisa or one of many canvases, so it is impossible to divide Alena Olasyuk’s paintings into various elements and parts.
You can not break up the harmony into pieces just to find the secret of its spirit.
It's like to break, to blow into peaces a castle or a house only to see their interiors.
The colors... Yes, black and white. That’s true! But these colors do not irritate.
Although it should be just the other way.
But in the pictures by Alena Olasyuk everything, that is imaginary misunderstood and irritates, is extinguished by the sincere pattern, exquisite skill, the paintings bring deep thought:
"Everything will pass and everything will fall into place." Philosophy. Time. Struggle.
Struggle as a means of survival, a way out of the crisis and of difficult periods in life, it is a struggle of optimism. Struggle as the means to move on.
To stop means to disappear.
And only after fighting down everything, that prevented you from breathing the spiritual oxygen that fills the soul, heart and every cell of the body, only that way you can find and gain!
The magnificent artist's work!
Significant and monumental in its nature.
The art work is performed in a different dimension, but connected with the artist's hand it is not frozen on the canvas, but lives its life and says:
"Do not worry and do not lose your heart in pain and trials. Wherefore all of them are the backbone of your present happy life! As a man have to be happy to create, to live and to bring joy of life and creativity to others..."
