Jelena is particularly interested in memory and the unconscious in the genesis of the abstract painting. She presents her work "untitled" leaving it’s interpretation and appreciation up to the viewer’s own imagination
Architect and urban planner, Jelena has always been drawing. In 2017 she attended classes at Martin Reyna’s studio in Paris where she began painting. In 2018, she lived in the studio of painter Mira Maoduš (former studio of Chaïm Soutine) in Cité Falguière in Paris, which strongly fueled her imagination. Thanks to a chance encounter in 2019, she became interested in the process of image creation and now considers nature and emotions fundamental resources in her art. That same year, she attended Nuala Clarke's workshop at Ballinglen Arts Foundation (Ballycastle, Ireland), which deeply moved Jelena, confirming her path in abstract art and clarifying her relationship with nature.
She explores color using her favorite mediums of both acrylic and oil pastel on paper. It is a continuous process of interaction between artist and surface: painting and drawing right up to the edge of the paper, she adds, subtracts, scrapes or covers creating an almost archeological work that is clearly connected to her career path. She is also influenced by travel and long, slow walks where she allows herself to be submerged by nature and its moods.
Jelena exhibited for the first time in Paris, in 2019.
