"Victoria Davidenko will demonstrate an intermediate result of her lengthy career. Cinema is a synthetic art, and the exhibition was created in the similar way. The exposition includes paintings, graphic works, and masterpieces of arts and crafts which harmoniously complement each other. The artist’s ideas were nursed for a long time, and at birth they fly away like seeds of dandelions, and lie down on the canvas like paints", — the museum spokesperson said.
