About Elena Genkin

  • Biography
    Hello, My name is Elena Genkin.  I live and create in Israel, where I have my own studio. Graduated from Voronezh Art School (Russia), during last years I participate in a variety of painting courses and learn from well-known artists. Today I'm a painter, a member of National Pastel Society of Russia, and an active member of local Artists Association.

    As per mediums, I divide my time between watercolors, pastels, charcoal and mix between them. As painting tools in addition to brushes, I use palms, fingers, palette knifes and even more. I mostly paint landscapes and cityscapes, whether done in a traditional style or more loosely when the landscapes become abstract inner spaces. My path is to look for new effects, a new look at the expression of ideas, harmonious combinations of colors, shapes, rhythm that cannot be repeated. Always I look ahead and go my own way. Color became my language - this is the way I can express myself best of all other languages. Painting leads me each time to a new exploration of being in the moment. I will never stop. The mixing and making of hues and tones, the flow of brush, the texture of the paint – is my passion.
       
     A lot of people live in "grey" humdrum cities (on their opinion). I think that I as an artist can bring to them the idea that beauty is always a step away from us, you just need to be able to see it. And when people will be able to discern the “remarkable in the unremarkable”, they will change their attitude to the place they live in. And there will be more happy people on our Earth. Nature and its various moods - one more focus of my art. I paint landscapes in the sunrise and sunset, rainy or windy weather, snow mountains and poppy fields. We travel a lot, and I always come back from these travels with lots of sketches, being inspired for new paintings. I'm proud to say that my works are in private collections in Israel, Russia, Bulgaria, Australia and other countries. As a passionate painter I often participate in various exhibitions, trying to reveal the beauty of our world to the people.
