Elena FattakovaNew York NY USA
Practicing various techniques while connecting traditional and experimental elements is of a particular interest to me: it extends imagination towards new, to discover the yet unknown in its purity. My early experience with art was influenced by classical music. After moving to New York City I discovered jazz and poetry and took on collages. Somewhere between lightness and gravity, collage is the medium is which I explored color and dimension. Gradually I came to sculpture and became a student at the National Academy School of Fine Arts where in addition to sculpture, drawing and painting became an extension of my poetic expression. Elena Fattakova was awarded a sculpture price at the National Academy Museum and has been showing her works extensively in New York and nationwide, including Rogue Space Chelsea, Gallery 57, Audubon Artists Society, the Salmagundi Arts Club, 25 CPW Gallery, NYC, the Santa Cruz Art League, the “Art for Japan” - UNICEF fund raiser, and others, as well as overseas in Spain and Germany. Her works are in private collections in the US, Europe and Australia.
