Opening of the exhibition "Reflections"

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀The artist Yulia Skrypka works mainly in the ancient technique of levkas, which was once used by ancient masters of icon painting. For her, "levkas is a bottomless well of inspiration and various technical possibilities," which gives rise to a wide range of volumes and textures and opens up vast creative horizons.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Her magical works reflect the most delicate emotional states: a fragile "web" of dreams, flavors, memories. Her stories are always personal, her heroes are personified, and the world of things preserves the memory of her ancestors.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Numerous self-portraits (the artist's alter ego) appear in a "lace foam" of childhood memories, favorite movie images, girlish dreams, and quite adult dreams. And the dream houses are inhabited by family belongings dear to the heart, old photographs, and "vinyls" - messengers of a bygone era.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In Yurii Skrypka's modern works, the ancient technique has gained a "second wind", personifying the desire for harmony and eternal values that are so lacking in the present. The motif of "mirror reflections", which is often seen in her works, symbolizes such longed-for balance and contemplation.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The magical colors and rhythms of Yulia Skrypka's works can act as art therapy, but above all, they remain art that is preceded by professional experience and high school education. According to the author, "such delicate and vulnerable zones as consciousness, the human soul, should be touched by true professionals, and humane people in general."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reflecting on the culture and art of our time, Yulia Skrypka states: "In our "smart" time, the visual channel is clogged with all kinds of junk. And in order to become an art addict, you still need some preparation, or at least the willingness to stop for a moment and dare to contemplate. Music, in this case, is more fortunate, and despite all the dirt on the air, the human ear is less overloaded and can still tune in to classical, jazz and alternative music."
