What the critics have said:

(Free translations from the French)

"…Abstractions in transparent very refined colors evoke hidden subjective and sensual images…’ –

- Christian Germak, art critic Arts Gazette Interntional N 240, 2.10.2001


‘…Excellent movement, subtle and elegant harmonies – well-structured realization – the works in the Grand Prix are the best … the very personal style remains; a delicate manner, femininity and poetry in every sense!'

- Dominique Chapelle, graduate of the Ecole du Louvre, art critic, expert in modern art, President of the Fédération Nationale de la Culture Française – European Art Group, Saint-Raphaël, France, March 2001


‘… From Anja Vvedenskaya come these superb canvases … with the help of varied techniques, of combinations of lines and surfaces, a choice of colors in the tradition of abstract expressionism, the painter tries to bring out the essence: that other dimension in which is reflected a mystic, enigmatic vision which ties the visitor to his own image.'

- ‘Nice-Matin’, Sunday, 6 August 2000, France


‘ …’lyric-abstractions', which are not concerned with daily life. They are … a purely aesthetic search, an art of silence in which the spontaneity of what flows from the canvas is the result of a mental preparation.'

- Arts Croisés’, Nº 16 Septembre/Octobre 2000, France


‘…A.Vvedenskaya is one of the major actors in Europe’ –

- ‘Côte d’Art’, Nº 6 March 2000, France
