A doll is a special kind of creativity … it’s almost a person, with its character, history and its own inner world. In her work, the artist Elena Misyuna strives to make sure that each pupa is harmonious and thoughtful both in terms of inner fullness and in terms of reflecting this essence already in the material, facial expression, posture and clothing.
Elena combines papier-mache and paperclay, which results in a very strong and light structure of the doll’s body on a wire frame with thin expressive lines. And in combination with painting and clothing made of natural materials (silk, leather, wool, wood, natural stones, beads and many other things) creates a unique interesting image of the doll that fills the house with its warmth and fairy tale.
