Visual language is a powerful and dynamic universal instrument of communication. Elena Guryeva's intention is to convey her emotions, ideas, and perspectives from an angle that differs from our daily encounters. Her work seeks to conjure a positive emotional response and to move people in their own ways.
Through June 4, this series PHENOMENA, Guryeva is motivated to materialize changes in nature. These shifts are often a part of a natural cycle, like a sunset, a low tide, or the arrival of a new season. At other times they are sudden events, like an earthquake or the collapse of a glacier.
In creating these paintings, Guryeva juxtaposes the natural world with the digital realm to address the role that technology occupies in our society. Each pixel, or square, floats and levitates in her landscapes, assembling a narrative, like pieces of a puzzel activating the transformative forces that exist in Nature.
