The famous Ukrainian artist ZINAIDA has been working on the creation of a series of works “Ornaments” for several years. Symbolism and the revival of traditions, the expression of historical codes in contemporary art form is one of the main directions of her oeuvre.
The ornament is a kind of code that tells about the emotions of the artist. It helps the viewer to discover their own feelings in a new palette of paint.
The ornament is like a puzzle that absorbs the culture of the native land, the art of generations and the thoughts of the artist. In its space there is everything: seen, heard, lived. This is how a story is born that everyone can touch.
Traditional Ukrainian ornament in contemporary art is not very common, therefore works from the Ornaments series are valuable for their uniqueness and originality. All paintings from this series are painted in oil on canvas. Traditional symbolism, known to us since the times of Ancient Rus, bright flowers and precisely matched color combinations, allowed the artist to create timeless art objects.
