Kryvolap’s preferred approach to creating artworks is to organize them in series or cycles that allow the artist to explore variations on a dominant motif. In her paintings, Kryvolap transforms landscapes into abstract visions through her textured layering of color. By combining the abstract with the figurative, the realistic images are redirected and refined into compositions and symphonies. There is no conflict, no competition—rather, a visual equivalent of musical accompaniment. A free spirit in her choice of colors, she uses opposite complementary colors to create a balanced visual impact. Blue, red, black, yellow, white in her paintings are like fragments of priceless mosaics, forming tightly structured compositions saturated with a relaxed free energy of painting so loved by the artist.  Kryvolap graduated from the Ukrainian National Academy of Art. She is a member of Ukraine’s National Union of Artists and of the Syrlin Kunstverein e.V. International Art Association. In 2013, Kryvolap’s works were awarded the first prize at the Ukrainian Triennale of Painting. She has held numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally since 1990.
