Artist Elena Gerasimova:
Creativity, like a prayer, connects me with God
Elena lives in Latvia and she: - Member of the Professional Union of Artists, - Resident of the International Association of Artists, - Listed in the Unified Register of Professional Artists. Elena says: «I am in beautiful little Latvia, on the shores of the Baltic Sea, which gives freshness and inspiration. Once I visited the holy elder Nikolai Guryanov (he lived on an island in Lake Pskov). The elder blessed me for creativity. Since then, I have been creating icons, portraits and paintings for 25 years. I deeply respect such a blessing. My works are in different temples and houses, as well as in different countries. I like to spiritualize the space so that it helps to think about God and creates a favorable atmosphere in the house». And according to the law of spiritual tradition and continuity, the blessing of the holy elder resides in every painting of Elena, which makes them special and unique - this is not only a painting, but also the subject of a holy blessing, which is especially favorable for the space of the house. In October 2022, Elena agreed that the paintings needed to go out into society - her family and friends had been telling her about this for a long time. And now Elena’s works are published in online galleries, participate in international exhibitions and competitions, and receive recognition and awards. The press writes about Elena’s paintings. Here's what the famous Vanity Fair magazine, published by Condé Nast, writes: «ELENA GERASIMOVA is a Latvian-based artist who crafts mesmerising abstracts, portraits and icons. With her mastery of different paint mediums, she has showcased her works in exhibitions and online galleries with widespread recognition. Infused with spiritual essence and inspired by the wonders of nature, her artwork brings divine serenity to any interior».
