About the Artist

Jelena Rukavina

Jelena Rukavina is a contemporary painter who lives and works in Wellington, New Zealand. When you look at the first abstract paintings/prints of Jelena Rukavina, you turn back to the very basics of modernist art, the interplay of lines, shapes, colors; you feel the power of these structural elements as those most fundamental forces of nature that shape us.

The motive of water or a wave is tranquil, contemplative, and fluid in its essence, in both its form and its meaning. The moments of water movements, wave motions as well as the rhythms of their moves are the creators of a continuous but unfortunately, ephemeral spectacle. This is captured in Jelena’s paintings. She acquired academic art training through secondary and higher education from an early age and is now inspired by the elusive nature of water, revealing her intuitive side.

“Life near the ocean opens your mind toward the future and how we can destroy or save our planet”
