The painting series "Mechanical ballet" comes from Fernan Leger and George Antheil eponymous movie (1924) with a piece of extraordinary music - the orchestra of mechanical instruments like pianolas and people playing together. Here, traditional color as an independent medium is subjected to the form and is essential of secondary significance. It just plays its part as a separate musical instrument in an orchestra. Continuing the tradition of mixed technique, Alena takes these media apart into layers like the layers of memory, working without sketches and deciding at every stage on the choice of the next layer: acryl, oil, cylinders, oil pastel, enamel, and again acryl (the order may vary).

Alena Kuznetsova’s interest last year was focused on the Image in art, on the study of how it transforms over time in her artistic practice. This also applies to more than 10 years of research of color as an independent phenomenon in an abstract approach, in the gradual splitting, dissolution of “solid” form into the pure vibration of the Liquid and Gamma series. The Kill bill series works in the conceptual field on the verge of balancing abstraction and the figurative that captures, flirts with the notion of the visual urban environment, ready-made and time. The compositional structure of Ballet Mecanique, the dynamic rich sound of a wide range of different media from enamel to graphic materials refers to the eponymous musical orchestra of 1924 and turns to synesthesia. The series Broad Perspective (not shown) basically works with time: an attempt to capture the moment "now" with a photo at high speed, then slowing it down as much as possible in time, in the process of working on a painting, in which, as in abstract series, essentially nothing happens. In some conceptual works/series in different media, Alena was interested in the themes of changes, corporeality, fluidity, digitalization of consciousness, ways of communication and language, as well as the city - as a common space of life that we form and affects us.
