BioMy journey began in Romania. I was born in the Maramures county, where pristine lands are dominated by the colorful, diverse culture and traditions of the slow, full of wisdom inhabitants. This diversity was in deep contrast with the limitations and scarcity of the Communist regime my curious child eyes got to filter. I spent my early years raised by my very pragmatic grandmother, in a village close to the regional airport. Seeing the airplanes every day flying above our tiny house carried a single strong message for me: that there is a world bigger than my tiny universe and the desire and curiosity to see and experiment it kept on growing. All I had was the imagination and the solitude of an introverted child, and the little pocket money that I raised for those “freedom days”. Later I studied math, computers, and then Architecture and Jewelry Design, and I started to travel as much as I could. I feel very influenced by various manifestations of Brutalism, Bauhaus, and Deconstructivism that I met throughout my life journey. I still am a fervent explorer of the visual language which I see as a freedom bridge that connects the words, the worlds, strong and subtle, with all their encoded cultures and encoded ephemerality. I now define myself as a philomath doing some unlabeled kind of art, a nomad creative woman working with digital, abstract, and introspective visual concepts.
Art StatementI am an inquisitive multidisciplinary artist that explores the unfiltered emotions and excentric layers of the human fabric. I usually start with an emotion, that occupies a volume in me and I mark that space somewhere on my digital canvas. Then the symbiotic flow process of opening and being opened by it has its own authority.
I use grids, geometry, and raw pieces of disturbances, to emphasize my intimate relationship with different contexts and situations. I’m very intense in dissecting human nature, politics, exploring the infinite habitat cells – the longing for nature and urban life, the social outcome of (digital) art creation, the evolution of cultural perception, and sense of belonging. My art practice is most of the time a meditative process focused on exploring, learning, and getting closer to the core. I’m very intrigued by the transformative strength I feel it has, and I relish the challenges of this delicate process. While my visual language is sometimes very brisk, the hidden layers talk about the need for diligence, creating time, showing up, and kindly trying to offer oneself the gift of attention every day. The hurdle is to embrace imperfection with compassion and give flexibility a chance to manifest, give up rigidity, and allow space for growth.
