Mixed media artist based in Romania. I also enjoy writing about my passion for art, tango and creativity, on my blog.
I am extremely passionate about analog collage. I like working with paper, feeling its smell, its texture. I tend to keep the scraps of paper that remain, I don't throw anything away. For me, all the "left pieces" of paper have their place, I organize them by category. This helps me to find a piece more easily when I have a new collage idea. Any "rest" can become the element of surprise, the missing piece of my collage. I really enjoy working intuitively. I don't propose a specific theme when I start a collage. Something about the images before me piques my interest. I start from there, that is the point where a visual story begins and not only... For me, analogue collage it is a form of self exploration and expression at the same time. It is the result of a process of introspection, as much as finding new perspectives.
I am inspired by many things and people, by music or any design element that see. I am also hugely inspired by women, in the portraits I make I keep "revolving" around the idea that women have extremely complex personalities, they have many roles, they are the "engine", the core, that's how I see them.
The portraits I make can be read both as a feminist statement, on the one hand, but they are also clearly a personal commentary on current society. I like to make visually incomplete portrait collages, precisely to bring a touch of mystery, I want to invite or to challenge the viewer to find their own way of looking at and understanding my collage.
My collages are made intuitively, freely, with an emphasis on composition, I prefer clean shapes, symbols with a feminine touch.
