  Elizabeth Grachev

Elizabeth Grancev   



Modern art today is engaged in providing shocks, in providing a twinge of excitement – and then in retreating from all that is eternally long-lasting and harmonious.

An intense and intoxicating life experience is part and parcel of that art which is increasingly in the grip of commerce.
Innovation and the latest fashion have taken the place of true style and traditional artistic training.

My objective in my work is to chart a path, to raise simple forms to complex heights, to take the viewer to the summit to enable him to contemplate and sense the grandeur and sacramental mysteries of the spiritual world, to arouse faith in man.

Words cannot express that which the eye can see. And hence: ever more freedom of expression, purity of line and striving towards the whole.
