The main direction of artistic creativity of Pankratova Elena.
The first mirrors were born from the desire of man to contemplate his reflection.
Winning more and more space in the interiors, the subject of the former luxury of the palaces has become one of the most popular building materials in the twenty-first century.
Modern design allows for almost universal use of glass in its quest to visually expand the space, not to mention the traditional walls of swimming pools and bathrooms.
Not just glass but the mirror walls allow going beyond the interior space.
The St. Petersburg artist Elena Pankratova creates in this” Wonderland” working with modern nonconventional color mirrors and glass.
Her graphics are teetering on the invisible line between philosophy of «reflection-refraction”, elementary physics and joyful state of soul of the author.
