In the works of Maryna Bindich preveils rather realistic vision, but quite often it borders with the abstract. By means of her works she offers a different view at the common for us ideas and things. During the last few years Maryna Bindich has been working with watercolours, acrylic paint and ball-point pens on paper, step by step applying these materials in thin layers. It’s a very painstaking process and each painting takes 3-4 months. As for choice of materials Maryna Bindich says: “I love working on paper, because it’s the simplest means of self-expression. This way you can achieve any desirable result or effect. It's important for me if my work is complete, sincere and appeals to a spectator.”

Indeed, you can’t resist the charm when you ask yourself: how is it possible to gain such a complicated effect of something not made by human hands using so simple and usual not only for artists materials?
