Artist Statement of Elena Petryk

My world turned upside down and the end of this path, I realized what art is for me - the beauty of human nature. After all, wherever I was, people who spoke different languages lived in different countries, differed in their features - and yet were so similar to each other, regardless of their differences. They loved, worked, laughed and cried. In each of them was this spark of human nature. That is what you can see on my canvases, in every movement with a brush.
