The pillar and inspiration of my painting is not only my subjective experience but more importantly religion and myths, historically called objective science. True art surpasses individual, subjective experience and takes on the flavor of eternal truth and the structure of sacred geometry and myth, the rhythm of chants and incantation. Art is an invitation for the Man to reunite with his source.

During my childhood I felt the attraction of the mystery hidden in the world: I had the knowing that every person and every object is more than it seems. I was intrigued by this riddle. I spontaneously took on painting and poetry to better understand what I saw.

Despite my resistance to becoming an artist, it became clear in my early twenties that painting is not only a tool of personal discovery, but vocation and destiny. Painting is a tool to learn to See again, to discover the essence in all its worldly disguises. Thus painting becomes as well a guessing game mirroring the world’s mythologies and creation systems. The pillar and inspiration of my painting is not only my subjective experience but more importantly religion and myths, historically called objective science.

I was born in Romania surrounded by tradition and respect for the sacred. Under the influence of luminaries who shaped the culture and spirit of my country I took seriously my path in art. I chose not to study art though, but Psychology, because I wanted art to be a study of Man. Art is a collective transmission and an objective method to understand the laws of the Universe.

When I was 26 years old I moved to Spain which became my second home and country. It is here where my art became public: I started a programme of two or three individual shows per year plus collaborations with artists from other disciplines such as classical music, poetry and dance.

I started to write and illustrate my own books. I self-published ‘Letters to my Soul’ (poetry) and ‘Stella, the girl who loves the stars ‘(children’s book). After 10 years in Madrid I moved to Paris in May 2017 to start a new cycle and challenge myself intellectually and artistically. The move to Paris, strange to say, is designed to be a time of reclusion, purge and focus.

I am exhibiting in New York today due to my deep love and respect for this city which ignites my faith in humanity.
