It is not only the traditional decoration for women's clothing, hair and holiday rituals, but also something more - a poetic character, which embraces a varied range of meanings and values.

‘Ribbons’ is the name of the newly created series of paintings by Kiev artist Hanna Kryvolap. The colorful ribbons fly over picturesque Ukrainian landscapes or are attached to the fence as a symbol of memory. The dynamics of thick bright lines on the paintings immediately catches the eye.
