“Painting by Edward Potapenkov touch on a number of topical issues of the present. The collision of humanity and society, the desire for self-identification, the attempt to meet the ideal of the ideal – that is, the tricky path to such an ideal, all of which is outlined, not limited to, the content of his works.
The unconcealed virtuosity of the smear of Potapenkov, the ability of several brush strokes to convey the most prominent angle of the body, the bulge of a capricious shape …. The contents of the artifact are not at all costing if their good intentions are not confirmed by an adequate level of formal decision: not enough, but it is an absolute necessity for the existence of a master artisan”

“Permanent visitors to Kyiv’s Galleries have long known and loved the creativity of Kiev’s Impressionist artist, Edward Potapenkov for his ease and relaxed demeanor, as well as the mastery of the seemingly trivial everyday sightings. Every time Potapenkov turns to some seemingly simple topic, it begins to add new meaning, memories and emotions”
