Oleksiy Fedorenko’s small scale etchings point to the artistic heritage of the great Renaissance masters of print such as Rembrandt and Dürer. Fedorenko’s ethereal subjects, angels, blical figures, and fantastic creatures, are brought to life through his imagination and wit. His mastery of printing techniques and multiple uses of line, contrast, and shadow, create an impressive range of tonal variations within the black-gray scales of the print medium. This narrow range of colors enables Fedorenko to subtly express emotion and heighten the fantastic effects of his other worldly figures. The meanings behind the symbolism contained in his prints are enigmatic and invite speculation. Little Flora, an imaginative and prophetic print, depicts a small girl who is perhaps dreaming of her future. Her hat magically grows tall, flowering at the base and becoming more stark, and rigid at its full height.

Born in Kyiv, Ukraine in 1961, Fedorenko holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Kyiv College of Applied Arts, a Master of Fine Arts degree in graphics from the prestigious Kyiv State Arts Institute (now the National Academy of Visual Arts and Architecture of Ukraine), where he studied in the art studios of Professor Vasyl Chebanyk. Fedorenko has held solo exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States, and his works are held in numerous collections. Fedorenko resides in Kyiv, Ukraine.
