My name is Lena Nechet, I am a European fine art painter in California. I make original artwork by hand with archival materials in environmentally friendly studio settings. In representing ideas and feelings, I care almost exclusively about the composition and the accuracy of expression. My art signature includes my seal L∃N∀.

My preferred art genres are portrait, abstracts, and zen-brush gesture. In art as in poetry, I love ambiguity - in my work you might find optically illusive elements, complex facial expressions, dimensional transparency, as well as erotic suggestion and figurative abstraction. In the same time though, I am specific and sharp in delivering the message. My main sources of inspiration are meditation, mathematics, beauty of perception, and elegance of movement.


Artist Statement by a fine art painter Lena Nechet: I paint ideas and feelings.
artist statement, credo

It so happened, that art is an essential part of my life, and almost all I see I recompose and enhance in my mind in this captivating flow of existential vision.

My childhood room was full of art when I was five: my parents' apartment was packed with books, and among them art reproduction albums, which were stored in huge piles close to my bed for years, and I went to sleep with images in mind from the greatest paintings ever made, and with dreams to create others. I wanted to make pictures so much that I never doubted it would become my main occupation. The desire of visual expression of my worldview and of the abstract beauty I was able to perceive had followed me ever since. 


A story in visual arts by Lena Nechet, from childhood to present.
bio, biography
I strive to provide exceptional archival quality of my paintings for the art lovers and collectors. I primarily work with single-pigment professional paints that have highest lightfastness ratings. My ground of choice is 100% cotton - canvas and rag hand and mould made papers.

I paint with ethically sourced or synthetic brushes and self-made tools, using eco-friendly materials whenever possible and reasonable. Occasionally, I use archival quality (pH neutral) or found papers and textiles, preferably recycled or repurposed. My studio is minimalistic and now has a view into my orchard.

Most of my paintings can be exhibited with exposed edges, or framed according to the customer's wish. I do not use wooden surfaces or support structures.
