Artists / Vazhenina Bossen Elena
My name is Elena Bossen.
As an artist I call myself Elena Vazenina-Bossen. I was born and raised in the picturesque Ural mountains in the small town of Kungur.
From 1980 I have been living in Western Europe – first in Estonia and then Denmark in the oldest town of the country Ribe.
In Denmark I found the possibility to realize my creative thoughts and dreams.
In everyday life I’m a church-singer and has graduated from the Musical Academy in Løgumkloster. During the last five years I’ve been active as an artist with several exhibitions in both Denmark and Estonia. In 2015 I went back to my roots by presenting my artwork to a Russian audience at a very large exhibition in Perm (Art Perm).
My great passion has always been esthetics and painting. As role models I am using Picasso, Rubens. Matisse, E. Degas, Gaugin, Monet and especially Emil Nolde.
My works are expressionistic, fauvistic mixed with a pinch of pop-art.
I love creating works using expressionistic vibrant pristine colors. I paint portraits of girls – without the use of models – they come to me as elfs from my fantasy. They come in different disguises. They are all alike - yet different and share many things!
The inspiration I get from everywhere: Nature, music, bodies, clouds, the sky, history and more. This world is beautiful and amazing. I want happiness in a world of fantasy girls
Painting is like a dance to me - an expressive dance like the tango with sensitive rhythm, living vibrations, passionate love and strong feelings – My fantasy girls portraits all that.
It is my hope that my paintings can give some of my energy and positive feelings to the audience.
Some of my early works are in private possession in both Estonia, Denmark, Germany and Russia
