The blue butterfly (2014)
Alla Preobrazhenska-Ronikier is one of the most interesting personalities in Ukrainian painting. Over her shoulders she carries 20-year-old baggage of art activity and over 50 solo exhibitions. Her paintings are held in the collections of many museums not only in Ukraine, but also all over the world.The artist is equally mastered in urban landscape and still life, animal painting and genre scenes. The tool in the creation of author's canvases is the palette knife both with it the rich color palette. However, she prefers black-and-white works, where the viewer is trying to penetrate the artistic intent, to follow the play of shadows.Alla Preobrazhenska-Ronikier’s “modern impressionism” paintings are reflected openly and directly. Much attention is paid to light and shade, perspectives, working with space.
