Ukrainian folk art is not only beauty and wealth! It carries a unique code that has come down to us over the centuries in the ancient symbolism of ornaments and colors. This is the code of Ukrainian's that we, the modern generation, must read and incorporate into our DNA, passing it on to generations to come.

In her colorful collection Code U, Oksana Tanasiv embodies her own fascination with folk art. Taking his patterns from a decorative and applied context, the author magnifies them as if under a magnifying glass, analyzes their rhythms, harmony and encrypted messages of their ancestors. The artist finds a way to translate folk wisdom in modern forms - translates them into the language of contemporary art.

At first glance, simple geometric compositions are made in sophisticated copyright. Oksana boldly and at the same time thoughtfully experimented with different materials, adding to the painting a collage, printed inserts, graphic elements and sheets of gold or silver foil. The artist encourages the viewer to consider the details of their work, to read the ornament scheme, to find and decipher ancient symbols, some of which have come to us from the Trypillya culture that existed in Ukraine more than 5,000 years ago. At the same time, the author takes care that the works look contemporary, stylish and can become the decoration of a modern interior.
