Artist Statement: I created that picture because the Butterflies are beautiful and have mystery, symbolism, and meaning. I tend to explore ideas that Butterflies are a metaphor representing spiritual rebirth, transformation, change, hope, and life. I tend to explore ideas and the mystery in the unseen, blending the nature and found imagery with my own dreams: "Painting is like a magic in a way it brings things to life that you just typically won't see”.
Bio: Aleksandra Seletskaya based in Monroe TWP, New Jersey. Having formal education and long experience as an Architect Aleksandra always had profound interest in arts, studied art in Odessa (Ukraine) also in The Art Students League in New York City. She is a member of the Garden State Watercolor Society, Suburban Artist's Guild, Creative Collective Artist’s Group, and The Arts Council of Princeton. She works in various mediums including Oil, Acrylic, Watercolors, Pastels, Alcohol ink and mixed media. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in different galleries and Art Clubs, libraries throughout NY/NJ, owned by individual collectors in US and Ukraine. Her works are very personal, lyrical and feminine. They present themes and environments that are light-filled and radiate wellbeing and serenity. Her arts offer the viewer an intimate access to her subjects and their surroundings. When I choose a subject, I am drawn to the magic of the water and the sky, the trees and the flowers. I try to lure the viewer to the tranquility and peace that can be seen in stars, a forest, a trellis, cascading acacia. I tend to explore ideas around transformation, beauty, identity and the mystery in the unseen. Blending the nature and found imagery with my own dreams I paint and draw, collage elements, altering colors and improvising from imagination to create a new image or reality.
