<Adam and Eva> tells the story of Adam and Eve. They are all naked and have obtained wisdom after taking the forbidden fruits. Eve is in a calm and still manner on the left while Adam shows his shyness using his hands to cover up his body. The figures are like flattened planes with round bodies and long, slim limbs. They look childish and naïve with small eyes and noses on their oval shape face. The dark cold color tone of the background together with the slender new moon contrasts with the characters in the centre, fogging the painting with heaviness.

<Two Women and the Dog> describes two women bathing under the moon. The one in front is naked with just a scarf around her body and is just about to put on the high-heeled shoes in a comfortable posture; the one behind wears only underwear, is leaning forward washing her hair. There is a simple drawn dog by the woman’s side with its tail waving upwards showing its curiosity and self satisfactory.

The figures are in a flattened form which is mainly enhanced by the hardness and softness of the lines. Beliakova takes the even pink as the background showing implicit simplicity while there is a piece of dark brown color under the feet of both characters and it functions in two ways: it points out the horizon providing stability to the whole picture and it helps to bring out the theme. The painting is delighted by the use of dramatic change of color saturation instead of variation in colors. The entire painting is surrounded by a harmonic atmosphere while the characters carry a taste of sorrow.

1963年Elena生於莫斯科,她就讀於莫斯科藝術學院,1989年成為俄羅斯畫家聯盟的成員,她至今仍於莫斯科生活及創作。1986年開始參與20多項國內外展覽。

Elena作品屬於表現主義一類,帶有一種樸拙的味道,顏色方面彩度不高,手法直接簡單。人物平面化沒有立體感,橢圓形面上有小小的眼睛及鼻子,簡單數筆的描繪卻感情動人;她筆下的人物總帶有一種「鈍」的感覺,頭部比例上比正常大,身驅則被縮短,手腳則長長幼幼,隨心的造型表現了一種和諧美。

Adam and Eva
畫中描繪了亞當夏娃剛吃了禁果得到智慧,二人均一絲不掛,左方的夏娃,神態自若;亞當雙手蔽體,帶有多少羞澀。人物平面化沒有立體感,身體渾圓長手長腳,橢圓形面上有小小的眼睛及鼻子充滿天真樸拙。淒冷的一彎新月,細細長長,背景用色深沉和中景人物形成對比,兩者都令畫面更沈重。

Two women’s and the dog
畫中描繪了兩個在月下沐浴的女性,前者一絲不掛略為披著一條披肩,正要穿上高跟鞋,姿態自在,後方的女子身穿內衣,正在俯身洗頭;人身一旁有一小狗,造型簡單,尾巴上擺一副好奇得意。人物造型平面化,主要以線條輕重表達剛柔,空間的處理上以均勻的粉紅色為背景,簡單含蓄,在人物腳下各有一片深啡色塊,作用有二個,首先點明地面所在穗定畫面,二有點題作用,畫面彩度不高利用戲劇性的深淺變化加強畫面趣味。整個畫面都以和諧為主,人物帶有淡淡哀愁。
