Yelena Sidorova
Aurora, Colorado

Silk is the fabric of the soul. On it, Yelena Sidorova pours paint in colorful sheets that shimmer and glisten with emotion. The process of painting on silk requires a delicate approach. Yelena has the gentleness required to weave mysteriously provocative paintings. She says, “I transform the world around me: every drop of dye on silk is one drop of magic into my existence.”

Stunning painting with lots of detail! Even my other half noticed this painting immediately upon installation. I have two paintings that were installed in my family room that took him a full week+ to notice, but he noticed and commented on how much he liked this painting the first day. Thank you so much, we really love it!

Hi Yelena, I just received this stunning painting. It is so beautiful! I love how the background is muted as if it's out of focus and the birds stand out in relief. Wow! The colors are truly amazing. Thank you so much for taking extra care in the packing as well! Please tell me if there is something special that needs to be done to prevent the silk from deteriorating or if there are any maintenance issues I should be aware of. Thank you so much!

Hi Yelena- It was so nice to hear from you and Alfama.Lisbon and all of your "city/town paintings are beautiful. The two I have from you light up my room with color and interest and everyone who has seen them, loves them. I better not get another at the moment as I am running out of space. Thanks and I have no doubts that you will sell all of your fine paintings. Cheers, Frank

Yelena Sidorova 2/16/2015 | 4:12 PM

Dear Frank! Hope you are doing well and still enjoy my paintings! Just wanted to recommend you look at the painting in my collection, "Alfama. Lisbon. Portugal Vine." This painting was designed as a complementary painting for the Alfama painting that you already have in your collection. It is not necessarily a diptych, but if you still have space in your collection it may create a good addition to it! Thank you very much for your previous purchase. Cheers, Yelena

Yelena Sidorova 2/16/2015 | 4:00 PM

I am glad to hear that you experience joy when looking at the painting. That is a great compliment! Yes, Prague is a beautiful town! You won't regret if you decide to visit someday! Thank you very much for your purchase. Hope to see you again in my store sometime. Cheers, Yelena

Today I received the second of Yelena's paintings and I am just as pleased as I was with the first. I chose another village scene, "Little Village in France" which had the blue effect and size that fit so nicely in my growing art room. Thank you Yelena and a Happy New Year to you. Cheers, Frank

Yelena Sidorova 12/21/2014 | 11:32 PM

Hello Dear Frank! I am happy to hear such nice compliments about my paintings. I am also glad you like the painting that you purchased when you saw it in person. I know that silk paintings can be surprising because of how much more beautifully they appear in real life. I also see you bought a second painting today!!! Thank you very much and Happy Holidays!

Frank 12/21/2014 | 7:09 AM

Dear Yelena- I am an old timer but somewhat new to the art world. Recently I discovered Ugallery and your work stood out. I just had to have some and ordered Alfama Lisbon as a Christmas present to myself. It just lights up the room with its vibrant colors and technique. Ill be back for more. Happy New Year!

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

This piece is from my Cityscape series. I likes small towns, secluded streets, and old architecture. They inspire nostalgia about previous generations, events and cultures. While painting, I always use the finest quality Chinese silk. When applied, liquid dyes and paints flow and move on silk in a way that is truly exhilarating to watch! In order to stop this movement, a material called a resist is used which not only stops the dyes from moving on the silk, but also creates an outline for what is being depicted, adding dramatic dimension. Once the painting is completed, the dyes are steam-fixed in order for them to become color-fast. This also causes the colors to become brighter and more intense. This piece is stretched, painted on the sides, and ready to hang.
