ABOUT ELENA GORLENKO
Born and educated in Russia, Elena is a printmaker who splits her time between Toronto, Canada and Berlin, Germany. Her love for printmaking deepened while studying under Mexican artist Guillermo Trejo in Ottawa School of Art.
"I endeavour to create ornate storytelling images for slow viewing.
My creative process evokes a sense of solicitude, calm and nostalgia.
Escapism like wandering through countryside is a big part of this process and my well-being.
I strive to develop an extensive appreciation for nature, foreign cultures and traditions through my trips.
Many of my works are deeply inspired by my travels around the world."
