A century after Degas produced many of his finest works, the Ukrainian artists show that in classical ballet, time has stood still, and the grace and elegance of the performers still demands from the painter not detail but devotion. For the East European artists, as with earlier specialists in the field, that is often expressed by glorying in the subjects through cascades of light.

“As with Degas, we lack delineation of the faces of dancers, although with these young women of Ukraine, we often feel closer to their moods
and movements. Their rapt attitudes seem so natural that we are lost in their dreams.

“Among Ukrainian artists whose balletic work has come to London are Panas Tytenko, his wife Olena Iakovenko and their daughter Oksana Tytenko. Emerging from the top Ukrainian art schools, members of this family have kept up the momentum with a gorgeous series of cameos that ensconce us in the ballet arena. Born during the first thaw in the Soviet climate in 1963, and one of the earliest of his generation to exhibit widely in Europe, UK and USA, Panas has been dubbed ’the master of light’ because of the subtle effect he elicits of light on flesh.” -- James Brewer, “Scenes from the World of Ballet, by Ukrainian artists,” Global Newsbox 11.06.2011

“In the early part of last century, painters of Ukraine studied how to emphasise light – it is a particular skill few artists have mastered” -- Camden New Journal, 26.05.2011.

“The full story of Soviet art is still unwritten... shows as this illuminate the diversity and surprises it contains.”Financial Times, 6/7.10. 2007
