The Secret Life of Nature and Objects

'The purpose of my art is not just to depict the outer shell of things but to reveal the inner world and personal history of objects.'

Elena Zima, artist

Elena uses magical realism to show the secret life of nature and objects. Every painting has an additional artistic layer: different reality, other life of objects and their history. Just like in childhood, looking at clouds, we saw different shapes. The same way the shadows in the foliage of the trees could fold into a shape of a person.

Her paintings can be perceived at different levels: as simply realistic or you can read them like a book, looking for and examining images that tell the whole story. In addition, each viewer sees his story that resonates in his subconscious.
