The artworks presented in this section are made by me, Lena Nechet, by hand and digitally.

  • I make fine art because I like the immediacy of manipulating mind and matter.
  • I photograph because the beauty of life is overwhelming and its moments are mysterious.
  • I montage films to share admiration of beings and motion.

Art - expression of creative skill and imagination, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.

Most often, I work in abstract portraits and rudimentary symbolic expression.
