Paintings by Elena Markova

Elena Markova was born in Russia, where she graduated from the academy of music, specializing in piano.

”In adulthood, I had lived in New York for over 10 years and studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology, majoring in video editing and animation. I was also involved in photography and painting. I have been living in Amsterdam since 2013, and I am exclusively engaged in painting. My paintings are found in private collections in New York, Holland and Russia, and are also given to charitable organizations. I use a realistic and romantic painting styles, but I am also not a stranger to intuitive painting, since I always tend to look for something new. Experimentation takes a big part in my work.
Art is probably one of the most difficult words to truly define. For me, my paintings represent an outlet; it’s a way to relax, have fun and a way to get my thoughts and ideas out. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to express myself visually, and to exhibit my creativity in an effective way. I think that everything can be considered art. It really just depends on your perspective. ” – Elena Markova

Beauty | Reflection of the Divine

What is beauty? Why does beauty attract us so much? Neoplatonism is based upon an axiomatic presupposition that the world that we experience through our senses is not the real world. Behind it lies something that is more real than it is, which in turn, is based upon something that is still even more real than it, so that the Most Real is quite removed from what we ordinarily experience. It is a theme found in ancient Greek philosophy and in numerous Hindu writers throughout the centuries. It is a theme of great historical importance in the intellectual history of the West, and India, and one that is not inconsistent with, and is even relatively amenable to, the major ideologies of the Greeks, Indians, Hebrews, Romans, Christians and Muslims.One distinctive feature of the Neoplatonic interpretation of this theme is a mapping or ranking of reality into a series of levels of reality so that anything at any given lower level is only relatively real. It can be concretely real as an individual thing while also being real as a lower level of something of a higher level.
