For all Bucharest people and visitors, I have the pleasure to invite you at my DUST solo exhibition at Melenia Art Gallery.

You can see this project on my new website WWW.MAIAOPREA.COM

or on my Facebook Page

" Seria „Ţărână" reprezintă proiectul de licenţă al artistei.
Compuse din siluete hieratice captive într-un fel de sfericitate sfâşiată, lucrările sunt situate, plastic, la graniţa antropomorfului cu zoomorful şi, senzorial, al animalicului cu umanul. Sub raport investigativ, "Ţărână" urmăreşte surprinderea stării de haos lăuntric, care pare a însoţi eul creator în momentul "erupţiei", dar modalitatea de exprimare este una antitetică "erupţiei", manifestându-se sub forma unui soi de vid tactil.
De asemenea, proiectului "Ţărână" li se vor alătura şi seriile " Transmografii" "Mumificări", care combină într-o manieră profund personală diverse zone de expresie plastică, cum ar fi aerografia, colajul, sculptura şi gravura.
Personajele care populează spaţiul acestor lucrări sunt evidenţiate tocmai prin lipsa lor de individualitate: siluete alungite cu trupuri şi membre răsfirându-se în jur, ca şi când ar pluti în derivă. Sunt trupuri obişnuite centrate în jurul unor amintiri suprimate sau a unor intimităţi pe jumătate uitate, care sunt personale şi, în acelaşi timp, individuale pentru fiecare dintre noi. O violenţă tăcută emanată de către aceste siluete, care nu pot merge, vedea sau vorbi.

        Expoziţia va fi deschisă până pe 17 noiembrie 2012.

       Programul galeriei: 13 - 19, Ma-Sa

Have a great autumn !

Romania
I am a young romanian artist, currently living and working in Bucharest, Romania. After pursuing my fine arts studies in the quiet Savannah (Georgia), on the east coast of the United States of America, followed by a great encounter with the french Alps in Grenoble, I am now finishing my painting bachelor at the Bucharest National Arts University.
Over the years I have undertaken projects in many different medias and techniques (such as video art, photography, graphic arts, sound art, art in public spaces), but I am nevertheless commited to what one would consider being the "traditional" arts, mainly those of painting, drawing, engraving and sculpture. For the moment I am going back and forth between contemporary approaches and traditional sujects . My paintings are usually the result of a fiery war, which I attend as an active spectator, and of the countless transformations occuring during work. What I often propose myself is almost meant not to reach a purpose, and not infrequently I am afraid that if I add anything else, the canvas will be destroyed. This makes me think of something I have read in the notes written by an artist I very much appreciate, the italian sculptor Alberto Giacometti : „ This is not to realise the vision I have of things, but to understand why we fail. (...) I'm indifferent to the difference between a successful and an unsuccessful thing. A successful painting, a failed painting, a successful drawing, a failed drawing , this doesn't mean anything. The failure is of interes to me just as much as the success." I wanted to share this with you because it somehow states what I consider will remain forever my conviction, mainly that the importance lies in the working process, and not in the finality of the art object.That my art will change according to my life, and the different styles as well, trying to remain as sincere as possible towards my art.
Having that in mind, I let the paintings speak for themselves.
As a mention, all my artworks are for sale.

cu multa...multa intarziere, revin pe Deviantart. De fapt, revenirea mea este putin fortata, din cauze pe care ni le putem imagina cu usurinta, iar Deviant-ul nu mai poate fi de ajutor pentru a ma scoate din acest impas...trecator, poate.
Ma bucura sa vad insa acest mesaj, de pe 21 dec.2011 ! La Multi Ani !
