Artist’s Statement: “In my art, I try to find the bridge leading from dreams to reality, from the invisible to the visible.”
The artistic explorations by Yelena Lezhen immediately capture one’s attention due to her extraordinary gift for self-expression through synthesis. For the artist ─ Ukrainian by origin, American by adoption ─ the key moment in pictorial representation, aside from artistic details or virtuosity, is the special importance conferred to symbols.
During last several years Yelena has developed the mixed media technique, new for her using ink and acrylic on black paper.
Yelena Lezhen has participated in numerous art exhibitions and won a number of juried selection calls for art. Her paintings and drawings can be found in private collections around the world, including United States, Germany, Israel, Russia, and Ukraine. Yelena was named as a winner at the 2014 International Art Festival sponsored by the Museum of Russian Art (MORA).
