Yelena Popova

InfoCVImagesArtworksNewsVideo
Soft and dusty colours of Yelena Popova’s abstract paintings which appeal to the art of Soviet Constructivism are the basis of her style. The installations often include round-shaped and rectangular canvases which oppose each other on the symbolism of form but complement each other in composition. Artist explores themes of contrasts, harmony and balance, both in the aesthetic and in the metaphysical field. Popova’s paintings are made for a long discussion with different points of view, they can’t be passed by viewer just with a quick glance.
