“Mini 8” collective at “Circolo degli artisti” gallery (Turin, Italy) 6-19/10/2017

Inspired by Salvador Dalì and Paul Delvaux, Yulia Korneva creates particularly efficient and bold paintings. So the portrait of her teacher the watercolor painter Piera Luisolo made with coffee on raw paper, meanwhile the “flowers of orange tree” is made with orange and blueberry juice on paper.
There russian painter shows the particular interest towards the definition of the subjects by means of the reality that is there to be “discovered” step by step.
Gian Giorgio Massara e Angelo Mistrangelo

Collective at “Piemonte Artistico e culturale” Gallery (Turin, Italy) 16-31/10/2012
Yulia Korneva works at the topic of figurative art taking inspiration from Paul Delvaux and Edward Hopper for the painting that appears and disappears according to the clear and light chromatic tradition.
The fountain of seasons was built in 1898 in Turin (Italy) to celebrate 50th anniversary of the Statute. That fountain became immediately loved by the artists, especially from romanticism current. One of the statues has been transformed by Yulia Korneva by means of lights and ancient intents revisited breinging the Classics up to date.
The other two artworks are very interesting: a drawing and a painting called “Italy in time”. Inspired by the famous nude by Ingres, the author plays with the colours of Italian national flag to evocate the sense of mental and moral liberty.
Gian Giorgio Massara e Angelo Mistrangelo

“BiblioTek” collective, Turin (Italy) 12-27/10/2012

The study and knowledge are to guide the group of artists from Leonardo to Michelangelo and to the projects looking forwart to the distant future … and than, a CD mysteriously inserted in the renaissance drawing, all of that permits to trace a “fill rouge” between the past and the present to the future.
Angelo Mistrangelo

Solo show “15 Artists of Cedas Fiat”, Turin (Italy) 2007

… For Yulia Korneva the time becomes memory and present together: the two of her drawings concern the clocks – sometimes without the arrows – inside the unusual canvas format. The past also attracts this young artist in the painting inspired to Macchiaioli art movement that includes the modern art pattern and the classic forms.
