The artist can find peculiar beauty, hidden in each subject and reveals it to the spectators with pleasure. Her stile is realism, but not dry, bare or listless. Poluyan-Vnukovas realism is rilically surrounded without inclination for fantasy or for artificial depiction of the world. Her hitherto artistic creative work, without any doubt, is worth high recognition for her frankness and seriousness".
