Painting of Kramarenko casts a spell over, plunges into a parallel world of irreality, makes it own laws of action. Intricate images revive in the flatness of works, retain pain and love, pureness and falsehood, hate, fear, hope, treason. Characters of paintings move in the own space, make and experience feelings, probably usual, but unmoved in place of common to humanity.
